To the Mothers and Fathers , whose sacrifices have made it 
possible for their children to receive the privileges and bene- 
fits of a college education, this One Hundred and Eleventh 
volume of The Illio is dedicated 



Through the pages of the 2004 lllio, we 
have endeavored to embody in a tangible 
form a picture of Illinois - its spirit, its loyalty, 
its tradition, and its prestige. May it ever brin; 

vivid and colorful memories to mind and 

leave you with a stronger impression of the 
grandeur of this great University, and serve as 
a permanent record of events, which, though 
dimmed by the passage of time, may be 
quickly recalled as you turn through the pages 

of this book.

program on campuj. 


In 2002, the University of Illinois announced it would be 
making a series of budgets cuts to compensate for a 
significant decrease in state funding. As part of a national 
trend, the state of Illinois experienced a budget deficit that 
impacted most of its citizens. The University outlined ser- 
vices that might be effected by the changes, from fewer 
campus jobs to fewer courses. Although the U of I commu- 
nity was forewarned, a significant number of faculty, staff, 
and students were unprepared for the way the budget cuts 
effected us individually. 

"Budget cuts have resulted in fewer Federal Work Study 
jobs," said Javari Thomas, senior in LAS. "I've had to seek 
employment off campus. However, off-campus employers 
tend to be less receptive to students' needs." 

One of the most noticeable changes the University expe- 
rienced was a decrease in the number of courses offered. 
There was simply not enough money to provide the same 
number and variety of classes that were available in the 
past. The Discovery Courses, once an important factor in 
recruiting freshman, have been drastically cut from 145 to 
104 offerings. Discovery Classes are small general educa- 
tion classes that facilitate interaction between teachers and 
students in a hands-on atmosphere. The program was cut 
completely in the spring 2004 semester. The reduction in 
these courses puts today's freshman at a disadvantage. 

"I think the budget cuts have had a big impact on 
campus," said Afenya Pongo, junior in ACES. "They cut 
the Consumer and Textile Marketing program I am in. The 
major is no longer offered to ACE underclassmen. It is 
unfair for students who still need some of those classes to 
fulfill University requirements." 

The University of Illinois is credited with having one of 
the most extensive library volumes in the country. 
Unfortunately, the library system was not exempt from the 
effects of the budget cuts. It canceled nearly 400 journal

titles. The libraries also reduced staff and cut back hours to 
save money. 

Finally, the budget cuts have forced the University to cut 
back on jobs for students. Even taking a quick look at the 
Campus Virtual Job Board this year reveals a decrease in 
the amount of on-campus jobs. Departments that usually 
rely on students for extra help have had to find a way to get 
the same amount of work done with fewer people. 

Administrators worked to soften the blow of the budget 
cuts on the campus community. They held town meetings 
and sent out mass e-mails asking for feedback from students. 
They focused on maintaining the high caliber faculty, need- 
based financial aid services, and courses necessary for degree 
requirements. The University continued to fight for funding 
to pay for some badly needed renovations. Students experi- 
enced an 8 percent tuition increase in order to help the 
university's financial crunch. 

All in all, the University of Illinois tried to make the best 
of a bad situation and maintain the high level of quality 
education is has provided in the past.

getting in and getting what you want 





The introduction of UI Direct had a significant 
impact on the University of Illinois. The 30,000 stu- 
dents on campus no longer had to choose classes from a 
paperback timetable and register in person. Now they 
could do it all from the comfort of their dorms or apart- 
ments. It sounded like the perfect solution. In fact, it 
did solve a number of problems, but created several oth- 
ers. Students at the University of Illinois today some- 
times wonder if they are really better off then their 
paper-toting predecessors. Although UI Direct success- 
fully solved the problem of convenience, students have 
many complaints and suggestions for improving the cur- 
rent registration process. 

Even before the registration process began on Nov. 
3, 2003, students anticipated hassles. Some attempted 
to log on to the online timetable several times and were 
continually told to try again in 15 minutes. Some opted 
for the paperback version instead. Ironically, the old 
way of doing things turned out to be more convenient. 

University of Illinois students receive an invitation 

to register via e-mail several weeks before their desig- 
nated dates. Theoretically, it is a well organized and 
reliable method. Students are given a specific date and 
time to register. Provided they log onto UI Direct at 
that time, they should have no problem signing up for 
classes. Unfortunately, busy students may have other 
obligations that prevent them from doing so. When 
they finally get the opportunity, they may receive a 
message that the server is busy. Meanwhile, the classes 
they need fill up. By the time they get into the system, 
they are scrambling to rearrange their schedules for the 
next semester. It is a common problem students face 
with UI Direct: classes fill up quickly and they end up 
settling for classes they do not want or need. 

Students have also expressed complaints about the 
order students are chosen to register. Athletes, James 
Scholars, and disabled students register first. After that 
it continues by grade level, with graduate students going 
first. It is then determined by the number of credit 
hours, those with the most credit hours registering earli-

er. Some believe that this is just part of deserved privi- 
lege and necessity. Athletes have to plan their sched- 
ules around practices and the disabled have to consider 
accessibility. James Scholars are given the privilege due 
to academic standing. 

Others believe this to be an unfair system. U of I 
sophomores probably encounter the most problems. It is 
easy to get into large general education courses. 
However, once they become interested in upper level 
courses, they find them already taken by upperclassmen. 

Budget cuts have only exacerbated the problem of 
full classes. Students wanting to take more unique or 
out of the way courses were told by UI Direct those 
classes were no longer being held. 

University of Illinois students have their own ideas 
for UI Direct improvements. It might help if students 
were given more opportunities to register. That way, 
having a busy schedule would not mean the difference 
between getting or not getting a necessary class. 

Maybe the invitation to register should be based on 

GPA. It would encourage students to work harder and 
reward those who do. The students who care most 
about their academics should have the advantage. In 
regards to class scheduling, last year there was talk of 
replacing UI Direct with a GUI program. This software 
program would allow students to choose their classes 
and view them in a chart representation of their daily 
schedules instead of the generic listing. It may not rem- 
edy the current problems with the registration pro- 
grams, but it would definitely help students in visualiz- 
ing and rearranging their schedules. 

UI Direct has significantly improved the registration 
process for University of Illinois students. It has made 
registration easier and more accessible. Yet, as with any 
new technology there are some drawbacks. UI Direct 
has been a true asset to our University but there is 
always room for improvement.

Temporary Housing: 

live in the lounge 

What it's ilk© to 



It's every freshman's worst nightmare- temporary housing. 
It means living in a lounge for an undisclosed amount of 
time that could potentially last all semester. It means not 
having a closet--a huge nightmare for girls. It means having 
to deal with more than one roommate. It means having to 
"move in" more than once. Worst of all, it means being at 
the mercy of someone dropping out or moving out so you 
can get a permanent space. 

Catherine Pirman, freshman in LAS, lived in temporary 
housing at Illinois Street Residences for about three weeks. 

She found out she would be living in temporary housing late 

For Pirman, living in temporary housing had its good and 
bad sides. Temporary housing was cheaper than regular dor- 
mitory housing, which she and her parents both liked. Living 
in temporary housing also gave Pirman the chance to meet 
more people. The downside was that she knew she would 
eventually have to move away from her newfound friends. 

Her room at ISR was about twice the size of her current 
room, and she shared it with two other girls. Though she 
liked the size of the room, the huge windows did not allow 
for very much privacy. 


Hi '••• 

:fr.y--.-.$S S§ 

Although she didn't mind temporary housing, Pirman felt 
very uninformed. The University never gave her a definite date 
jf when she was to move to permanent housing. Finally, Pirman 
was given a permanent room assignment and had five days to 

"I felt really rushed," she said. 

Pirman also felt everyone involved was uninformed. Neither 
ier new roommate, nor new resident advisor, knew she was 
noving in until Pirman showed up at their doorstep. She felt 
rhere should have been more organization. 

"I think it pissed me off because I was so comfortable. I got 
■ituated and then all of a sudden, I had to pick up and start all 
)ver again," she said. 

Still, Pirman is happy with the move. Her new floor is much 
riendlier. Also, her best friends live four doors away. 

"I feel like now it's actually my room and I feel like more a 
>art of the floor," she said. 

Patrick Fitzgerald, freshman in LAS, also lived in temporary 
lousing at ISR. Fitzgerald shared the same dormitory as Pirman, 
!mt his experience has been more positive. 

Fitzgerald found out over the summer he was going to live in 
emporary housing because he failed to send in his housing 
pplication on time. Fitzgerald said he wasn't upset about his 
lormitory assignment because he knew it was his own fault. 

"I don't think it's a big deal," Fitzgerald said. 

Above A temporary room has the 
same furnishings as a 
standard room, including beds, desks, 
and windows. 

Opposite page Many of the University 
Residence Halls 

converted lounge space into resident- 
friendly rooms to 
accomodate the large Freshman class. 

Fitzgerald's room is three times the 
size of a standard double room. He says 
having a lot of space cuts down on 
worry about cleaning or organization. 
Fitzgerald's only complaint is the beds. 
Temporary housing 

provides metal beds instead of the nice 
wood ones standard in regular rooms. 
He had three roommates at the begin- 
ning of the year. He found it hard to coordinate with them 
because he was only able to contact one of his roommates. The 
group ended up with three refrigerators due to lack of commu- 

Although he doesn't mind living in temporary housing, 
Fitzgerald looked forward to moving. University housing noti- 
fied him that he will move to a permanent room at the begin- 
ning of Spring semester. He hopes to move to another room in 
ISR, possibly down one floor. 

Overall, Fitzgerald hasn't minded the experience. He really 
likes the reduced room and board fees. 

"You save like $1,000 to $1,500 dollars, and you're not really 
giving up anything," he said.

How do we 


Brothers is one of ten bars on campus. 

In the fall of 2003, The Princeton Review ranked the 
University of Illinois number four on its list of the nation's 
top party schools. Although the average undergraduate is 
familiar with University night life, it came as a surprise to 
some that students partying habits received national recog- 

University administrators were obviously unhappy with 
the title. As one of the country's most prominent public 
Ivy's, the University has reputation to uphold. 
Administrators did not want the label to subtract from the 
academic integrity of the institution. In an Aug. 22, 2003 
Daily Illini article, spokesperson Robin Kaler questioned 
the motives and methodology behind the study. It seemed 
to make an unfair characterization of the University of 
Illinois based on a small segment of the population. 

Further, how much credibility should be given to a 
ranking sandwiched between the Princeton Review's 
"Reefer Madness" and "Lots of Beer" categories? The titles 
seemed almost silly. Nonetheless, it raised questions about 
the relationship between academic and social pursuits at 
the University of Illinois. 

Few University of Illinois students were shocked by 
The Princeton Review's findings. On any given night, 
there are number of parties to choose from. A large part of 
the community, roughly 6,000 students, is involved in 
Greek organizations on campus. In fact, it was ranked 
eighth on the Review's "Frat and Sorority Scene" list. 

Most of us are familiar with the fall rush period. 
Hundreds of Greek hopefuls take part in the process, which 
culminates with parties to celebrate the induction of new 
members. In addition, undergraduates have a selection of 
bars on Green Street, most of which only require patrons 
to be 19 to enter. Joe's or Brother's can expect a decent 
crowd on any night of the week. At a challenging institu- 
tion like the University of Illinois, students view the week- 
ends as an escape from the stress of the week . A relentless 
flow of mid-terms, papers, and projects can leave any stu- 
dent searching for some stress relief on a Saturday night. 
Many students have a "work hard, play hard" attitude. 

In contrast, some students have managed to balance 
studying and partying, while others avoid the party scene 
altogether. Many students manage to focus completely on 
work throughout the week, and forget about it all on the 
weekends. They say parties do not interfere with their aca- 
demics. Most high school seniors view this balance as the 
ideal college experience. After assimilating to the college 


atmosphere, some students view partying with much less 
importance. Still, efforts have been made to ensure that 
college students make wise decisions regarding their leisure 

The University of Illinois previously distributed Alcohol 
101 to incoming freshman. It was a CD giving students the 
facts about drinking, and was created to warn freshman 
about the temptations and hazards that go along with 
excessive partying and drinking. There were also regular 
ads in the Daily Illini attempting to relay the message to a 
much broader audience. 

Perhaps the University should look at the Princeton 
Review's findings from a different perspective. No one has 
mentioned the University of Illinois was ranked number 
one for TA's teaching too many upper level classes, and stu- 
dents seem to be more concerned about this issue than 
their weekend drinking habits. It has been a source of

debate on campus for the past several years. If members of 
the U of I community are going to truly consider the find- 
ings of this type of publication, it should focus on how the 
findings can be used to improve academics. 

The Princeton Review's ratings will not take away from 
the University's hard-earned academic reputation. 
Although it may have raised questions about the amount of 
partying on campus, it also highlighted the high academic 
standards. The University's admissions office has high 
expectations for incoming freshman and the process is 
quite competitive. It was also recognized for its engineering 
and graduate law programs. No trivial ranking will tarnish 
the image of the University of Illinois. It is, and will 
remain, one of the nation's prominent public Ivy's.

aking History 

ig the largest Freshman class 

a-Champaign f 

■ MH. III J . UA. I, ■■■ IJI III U || | 

Imagine living in a lounge in FAR - big rooms, lots 
of windows, extra space. Students who lived in resi- 
dence hall lounges as part of the University's temporary 
housing this past fall were truly trendsetters. They were 
not necessarily predicting the latest fall fashions, but 
they were the ones who helped the University take a 
gigantic step ahead of other schools in terms of 
freshman enrollment. 

This past fall, the University observed at least a six 
hundred student increase to the number of accepted 
applicants who chose to enroll at the University. 
According to the Office of Admissions and Records, 
total freshmen enrollment capped off at 6,801 this fall. 

Two major factors have contributed to this signifi- 
cant increase, said Stanley Henderson, Associate 
Provost of Enrollment Management. The first and 
most important factor is the quality of the University. 

"Students enroll where they perceive the best quali- 
ty to be," Henderson said. 

With the University being the top ten school in the 
nation, along with housing several top five programs, 
Henderson sees this enrollment increase as recognition 
by students and parents of the excellence of the 

"Affiliation with excellence drives students to come 
to the University," Henderson said. 

A second trend has also lent a hand to increased 
enrollment numbers. Henderson noted that the nation 
is in the midst of another baby boom, particularly in 
the state of Illinois. 

"Illinois's number of high school graduates is 
increasing, increasing beyond the natural progression," 
Henderson said. 

With more high school graduates, the applicant 
pool for those choosing to attend college has increased. 

With the increased number of freshmen, there are 
indeed concerns to be addressed. Crowding in the resi- 
dence halls and classrooms is an issue, both of which 
are compounded by the state of Illinois budget crisis, 
under which the University is suffering greatly. Since 
Henderson does not see enrollment dropping any time

line to board the bus outside the Gregory Drive halls. 

soon, he emphasizes the need to control these numbers 
in light of the problems the University is encountering. 

"We must carefully monitor how this growth will 
effect education," Henderson assured. 

With the baby boom currently occurring, 
Henderson predicted the excellence associated with 
other Big Ten schools would be causing increased 
enrollment numbers on their campuses as well. 

Although the eight campuses of Indiana University 
boast record numbers of student enrollment, some indi- 
vidual campuses are down. The Bloomington branch of 
Indiana University had an enrollment decrease of 314 
students, but the campus still set a record number of 
credit hours enrolled. 

Other Big Ten schools are also lacking the stagger- 
ing increase seen at the University. According to the 
Office of Institutional Research at the University of 
Wisconsin, Madison, overall enrollment is hardly up 
over .02%. Phillip Hull of the Office of Institutional 
Research said these numbers did not appear as thought. 

"It is not surprising that there was not a significant 
increase because the University is attempting to keep it 
that way," Hull said.

Student Teaching 

Earning their jtriped 

"Student teaching is the final piece in 
the [Education] curriculum," according to 
College of Education Director of Clinical 
Experiences Jennifer Heinhorst-Busby. 

Though student teaching is something 
most education majors anxiously look for- 
ward to, there is a lot of work leading up to 
that part of the curriculum. There is a very 
strict course list students must follow and 
many standards they must meet. 

Before wannabe teachers can even 
think about molding young minds, they 
must be accepted into the School of 
Education. Students can apply fall semester 
of their junior year. First on the list of 
requirements is a Liberal Arts and Sciences 
major such as Biology, English, or History. 
A GPA of 2.5 or higher is mandatory. They 
must also pass the state mandated tests. 

Once accepted, students must follow a 
tight curriculum for the next three semes- 
ters. They must take courses heavy in both 
their LAS major and Education courses. 
Thirty-seven hours of education courses are 
mandated by the school in order to apply 
for an education minor. 

Along with classes and tests, students 
are required to gain field experience, which 
can mean a wide variety of volunteer activ- 
ities. Many students choose to tutor or 
work with youth service programs. 

Once students reach their last semester, 
they are placed in a student teaching 
position. The University places students in 
schools across a 50-mile radius reaching 
from Danville to Decatur. Students can 
also be placed in the Chicago Public 
School System, and in suburban districts 
like Hinsdale or Arlington Heights. 

Each level of teaching has increased 
requirements. Early childhood majors are

required to do eight weeks of student 
teaching. Elementary teaching majors are 
required to work six weeks part time and 
ten weeks full time. Secondary education 
majors are required to work full time for 16 

Though it seems like a great deal of 
work without any pay, students do get cred- 
it for the work in the classroom. According 
to Heinhorst-Busby, this is the student's 
chance to use what they took from their 

"Student teaching is to put into practice 
all the theory they've been learning," she 

Also, student teaching is another way 
for the college to test these prospective 

"They need to prove they're a candidate 
that we would recommend for certifica- 
tion," Heinhorst-Busby said. 

The student teaching experience is a 
time to test the waters. It's a time to learn 
about the kids, about teaching, and mostly 
about themselves. 

"Student teaching is where they [stu- 
jdents] start identifying their strengths as an 
educator," she said. 

For LAS and ED senior Kristin Catral, 
student teaching has been about learning 
:o adjust. Currently, Catral is student 
reaching at a middle school in Danville, 
ind has met many surprises during her 
experience. She has found kids are some- 
:imes hard to deal with, and what she 
earned in school isn't always going to help. 

"Classes through the College of 
Education are good . . . they teach new 
progressive theories . . . but theory can only 
lo so far," she said. 

Catral is also discovering the need for 
itricter state mandates. She said during her 
parlier years as an Education student, she 
lidn't see the need for new state tests and 
equirements. Now that she has been out 
n the work force, she has been shocked 
vith many educators and now understands 
he need for stricter state regulations. 

Although she's had to adjust, Catral has 
nany goals for her student teaching experi- 
:nce. She wants to bring new and different 
ictivities into the classroom. She'd like to 
epart from books and worksheets, and try 
nore interactive ways to educate. She also

Mostly, Catral wants to make a connec- 
tion with the students. She feels she has 
really accomplished something when stu- 
dents can relate to her. She also strives to 
show the students respect so they in turn 
will respect her, thus creating a healthy 
learning environment. For Catral, there is 
no better job than the idea of "making an 
impact in someone's life."

Party til Dawn 

£)r at tm&t ptntU tupo 

Deconstructing Jim plays at 
the Iron Post. 




Last fall, the Champaign City Council 
voted to extend bar hours in Campustown to 2 
a.m., much to the enthusiasm of party-goers at 
the University of Illinois. The purpose was 
two-fold: to keep students safer by allowing 
them to drink in a controlled environment and 
to decrease the number of intoxicated students 
leaving the bars after closing. It remains to be 
seen what the long-term effects of the change 
will cause, but some events are already making 
some wonder if it was the right decision. 

The extension of bar hours in Campustown 
has been positive for partiers in the U of I com- 
munity. They can head out to the bars on the 
weekends and look forward to an extra hour of 
fun. After a week of papers, projects, and 
exams, what could be better? The hundreds of 
students that frequent Kam's, Clybourne's, 
Legends, and other establishments every 

Saturday night certainly agree. 

The students aren't the only ones pleased 
with the new amendment. It's great for busi- 
ness, giving bar owners extra time to bring in 
extra profits. Andrew Shaw, manager of Kam's, 
is quite enthusiastic. Shaw says the change has 
been very positive. 

"People still come out about the same time 
and generally stay later," he said. 

Shaw sees no negative consequences as a 
result of the extension. Unfortunately, not 
everyone agrees. Some citizens of Champaign 
County feel that the extension of bar hours last 
Fall has been negative for bar patrons and 
residents of Campustown. According to sources 
at the Champaign News-Gazette and the 
Campus Police Department, there was an 
increase in certain crimes since the extension, 
particularly property crimes and fighting. It

eems the intention of making students safer has 
iot been entirely successful. According to Sgt. 
ohn Brown of the Campus Police Department, 
here has been little change for the better. 

"People will leave intoxicated anyway," he 

There is a link between intoxication and 
rime. In regards to the assertion that the change 
eeps students safer by allowing them to drink in 
controlled environment, Sgt. Brown strongly 

"A bar is no safer than going to a party," he 

Brown stresses students should drink less if 
hey want to be safer. Fewer intoxicated partiers 
i'ould lead to less violence. The extension of bar 
ours obviously has a downside. 

The issue of bars and safety in Campustown 
as been ongoing. After noticing the increase in 
rimes, some members of the Champaign City 
'ouncil began to rethink their position. There 

was talk of preventing more clubs and bars 
moving to the downtown Champaign area.

increase in property theft in Campustown, a 
proposal found its way to city council to place 
a three-year moratorium on the number of bars 
in the downtown Champaign area. The pro- 
posal was struck down 5-4, but Mayor Jerry 
Schweighart wants the Champaign City 
Council to reconsider their decision. 

The issue of the extension of bar hours is a 
heated one. As long as university students 
crave the night life and officials make safety 
their primary concern, there will be some con- 

For now, students can take advantage of 
that extra hour of stress relief every weekend.

It never ends... 

Campus construction is a perpetual occurrence 
for University students. Along with the seemingly 
constant street construction projects, the University 
has many smaller building maintenance projects. 
After reviewing the information released by the 
University's Office of Planning, Design and 
Construction, students will share in watching the 
University grow and improve for years to come. 

In August 2002, the city of Champaign complet- 
ed the Green Street section of the larger 
Campustown Infrastructure Reconstruction and 
Streetscape Project. The goal of this project is to 
improve drainage, pedestrian safety, traffic circula- 
tion and lighting in Campustown. The project's next 
goal was the completion of infrastructure replace- 
ment on Sixth Street between Healey and John 
Streets, which took place in August 2003. The 
Sixth Street infrastructure dated back to the 1920s. 
The city's purpose was to transform the look and 
function of Campustown, and present a new front 
door for the University community. 

The University also had a number of building 
and renovations projects in progress. Some of the 
construction in the fall semester included the Huff 
Hall Pool Infill, which transformed the space into 
approximately 8,000 sq. feet of office and classroom 
space on two floors.

McKinley Health Center was involved in a long-term renovation as well, 
while mechanical and electrical systems were updated. 

Other projects included the remodeling of Clark Hall, the Materials Science 
and Engineering Building, Thomas M. Siebel Center for Computer Science and 
the Veterinary Medicine Basic Science Building, as well as the construction of a 
parking deck on University Avenue. 

One of the long-term construction projects begun this year was the IMPE 
Renovation and Expansion Project. The project was estimated to cost $77 mil- 
lion and be completed in fall 2006. Construction began in September 2003 
with the closing of Peabody Street. The renovation and expansion are taking 
place to accommodate growing numbers of students who use the facilities, after 
studies found that the gym could only hold one third of the student body at full 


Aside from the large IMPE renovation, other projects saw much progress dur- 
ing the school year. A remote storage warehouse for library books was built, as 
well as heat and air work at the Illini Union, accessibility upgrades at the 
Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. Parts of Lincoln Avenue and Allen 
Residence Halls underwent remodeling, and Noyes Lab also got a facelift. 

Our University remains in a constant state of change. Campus is repeatedly 
being reinvented, and is moving positively in the direction of campus beautifica- 
tion and improvement. Through projects like the Campus Infrastructure 
Reconstruction and Streetscape Project, and the IMPE expansion and renova- 
tion, students of the present and future will see exciting changes happening to 
our campus.

Modern Day 


u m n 1 


For graduates, the University of Illinois has been a home for 
years. When a student graduates, there are several options, like 
entering the real world and joining the workforce, or continu- 
ing their education. While thousands of students leave every 
year, seemingly disappearing into the void, their lives do contin- 
ue beyond the boundaries of Champaign-Urbana. 

Chandra Linton is a contemporary Illini. She graduated in 
August 2002 with a degree in Political Science and a minor in 
African Studies. Linton chose to attend Georgetown 
University and seek a joint degree in Law and Public Policy. 
She credits her preparation at Illinois for her success in graduate 

"Yes, [U of I] most definitely prepared me," she said. "I 
loved U of I." 

Linton was a member of Model United Nations on campus. 
She worked at the Home Government Research Center at the 
American Model United Nations Conference at the Hyatt 
Regency in Chicago. Linton said that through opportunities 
organizations like Model United Nations created, she was able 
to be a part of the AMUN staff. 

Between graduation and Georgetown, she worked for a year 
at Urbana High School as a teaching assistant, and realized her 
calling was in Special Education law. She hopes to be an advo- 
cate for them. 

Kelly Marie Fitzpatrick Messner graduated in May 2003. 
The following August, she married William Messner, whom she 
met in Newman Hall her freshman year. 

Messner is working as a nurse's aid at Central Dupage 
Hospital in Winfield. Her job involves working with doctors 
and nurses to make patients as comfortable and healthy as possi- 

"I take vitals, assist patients in and out of bed, bathe 
patients, help change dressings and communicate patient's pain 
to their doctor or nurse," she said. 

Messner said she realized for the first while attending the 
University, "how fun learning is and how a good challenge in 
life can be very rewarding." She also said living at Newman 
Hall allowed her to grow spiritually and deal with challenges to 
her faith, an important skill when working with the sick. 

Messner gives this advice to current students: 

Take advantage of all the little things the school has to offer. 
If there is not a RSO for something you are interested in, start 
one! Live it up and stay up late socializing. It is a whole differ- 
ent world working 9 to 5, or 7 to 7:30 in my case. Frankly, col- 
lege gives you time to find yourself, so try new things, meet new 
people, challenge your beliefs, and in the end, you will have 
learned that most important thing... who you are, or at least 
who you want to be.

[ And The Beat Goes On... 

On football game days, most college students roll out of 
bed at the last minute and run over to Memorial Stadium. 
The earlier risers hit the bars for football block or to tail- 
gate with friends. For LAS senior, Eddie Hernandez football 
game days start at 7 a.m. Hernandez wakes up early for the 
love of music, marching, and everything else that goes 
along with being in a band. Hernandez is a drum major for 
the Marching Illini. 

"When you wake up in the morning, you know you 
have something to look forward to, and that makes all the 
difference," Hernandez said. 

Hernandez played the saxophone since fifth grade. He 
has always liked music and refused to give it up when he 
went away to college. He spent time in band during high 
school as a drum major, so Hernandez decided to try out for 
the Marching Illini. He spent two years in the saxophone 
section and two years as a drum major. 

"When I find something I like to do, I stick with it," he 

rum major, a position he's held since trying out sopho- 
ands more than other positions in the band. 
Drum majors are responsible for writing their own routines 
and help lead the rest of the Marching Illini. 

"Being drum major is a lot more responsibility," 
Hernandez said. "When you go to being a drum major, you 
have to work with 350 people and they have to trust you. 
It's not something that comes with the job. It has to be 
built. You have to prove to them that you're capable of the 

One of the most important parts of the job description is 
writing a mace routine. A mace is the tall, baton-like walk- 
ing stick drum majors carry. The routine involves marching, 
different steps and spins. Mace routines are used to fill in 
the band's performance and can be very long. 

"We have to find out how we can fit into what the rest 
of the band is doing," he said. 

When writing mace routines, all three drum majors work 
together in order to find what steps look best and what 
works with the music. 

"When you know it fits, you just feel it," he said. 

Hernandez said writing a mace routine is just like writing 
a paper — it all depends on your state of mind. Sometimes 
when writing a routine, drum majors will come up with new 
material, and other times they will sample from old routines 
they've done. He enjoys coming up with new moves, "new 
visual things that have never been done before". 

Another major part of being a drum major is helping 
new hand members at the beginning of the season. Drum 
majors help teach marching fundamentals, procedures, and 
traditional songs. A major responsibility is making sure new 
band members are taught correctly and enthusiastically. 

"That first week is very important because it sets the 
tone for the entire year," Hernandez said. 

Though the first week of the Marching Illini season is 
important, everyone knows game days are what really mat- 
ter. Performing on the field at football games is what every 
practice and section rehearsal is about. Game days are long 
and hectic, especially stressful for drum majors because they 
have to worry about the entire band's performance, not just 
their own. 

Practice begins when drum majors lead the band in 
warm-ups and try to get everyone energized for the game. 
They stretch and play music until the director takes over 
and leads the band in marching fundamentals. Then the 
whole band runs through both the pre-game show and the 
halftime show. 

At about 8:30, the band breaks for lunch while the 
drum majors continue practicing. The day continues at 
10:15, when the band marches from Memorial Stadium to 
the corner of First Street and Kirby Avenue for "Street 
Fest". The Marching Illini join the musical line up and play 
a few songs to get the crowd excited for the game. 

After the performance at "Street Fest," the band has a 
few last moments before the game. When the clock hits 19 
minutes before the game, it's time for "run on." The drum 
majors take to the field. Standing out on the football field 
in front of a huge crowd is what it's all about, Hernandez 

and on...] 

"I don't think I'll ever forget the feeling of standing on 
the field for pre-game. It's exciting to think about what 
you're going to do. Those five minutes are devoted entirely 
to Marching Illini, and it's great to know you're getting the 
crowd going regardless of what's going to happen in the 
game," he said. 

When the whistle command is given, the band floods 
the field from each corner of Memorial Stadium, and as 
soon as the last member is on the field, the band breaks out 
into their first song. Pre-game is filled with traditional 
songs such as "Illinois Loyalty" and "Oskee Wow Wow". 

"The only time I'm conscious of what is going on is 
when I first get on the field and when I first leave the field. 
It's almost like hitting a wall of sound. It's amazing. But, as 
soon as the whistles go off, it's autopilot, what I've learned, 
what I've practiced, it just happens," Hernandez said. 

Everyone feels great walking off the field after perform- 
ing. He says it's good to know all the hard work has paid 
off. Everyone also enjoys the cheers from the crowd and 
high fives people give as they walk by the stands. 

"It's great to know that people appreciate what we've 
done," Hernandez said.

The BrOadSheet Returns 





Fifty years ago, the Daily Illini shaved a few inches off its 
figure, scaling down to an 1 1 x 17-inch tabloid page size. The 
slimmer style, common among high school and college publi- 
cations, enjoyed a half-century run on campus five days a 
week. However, new students succumbing to the proverbial 
freshman 1 5 weren't the only ones getting a little wider in 
2003, as the DI returned to a broadsheet design. 

While the additional room may appear to be a mundane 
alteration, interesting only to design and journalism majors, 
the redesign, occuning along with the shift, caught many DI 
readers' eyes at the onset of the year, according to Matt 
Stensland, Daily Illini editor-in-chief. 

"Readers definitely notice it," Stensland said of the change. 
"The most common reaction we get is 'now it's like a real 

Just the response the staff was going for, said Copy Chief 
Supriya Doshi. While updating the look of the paper was cen- 

tral to the changes made, designers also carefully walked the 
line between maintaining the publication's classic appearance 
and giving it a more professional flair. 

"We thought it would be good for the paper," Doshi said. 
"We wanted to keep the student newspaper feel, but at the 
same time we wanted it to look more professional." 

In addition to the larger format, major changes included 
splitting the paper into two sections and adding pages, as well 
as running full color on a daily basis. These modifications 
were key in accomplishing many of the staff's goals for the 

"Last year, we only had color on the front and back, and 
only on Monday and Friday," Stensland said. "Now it's on the 
front and back of both sections every day. It's a much more 
visually appealing product. Now the feel and size are compa- 
rable to the Chicago Tribune or any other comparable major 
metropolitan paper."

Making the initial decision to redesign may have been the 
ieasiest step in the process, as the switch to broadsheet coincid- 
;ed with the option of choosing a new plant to print the paper. 

"Part of the decision was because our contract with the 
'press in Rantoul was up," Doshi said. "The News-Gazette is 
nearby, and it offered broadsheet, which we saw as an open 
opportunity. Primarily, it was an administrative decision." 

Once the decision was made, a variety of staff members 
became involved in the process. The advertising department 
jplayed a key role, determining the size and amount of non- 
ladvertising material in the paper. From there, decisions about 
ontent could be made. 

"It's not just a design thing," Doshi said, "A lot more peo- 
Die work on it, the news and sports editors, for example. It's 
not just a change lookwise, but contentwise as well." 

More than just keeping up with trends drove the changes. 
vvTiile the DI wanted to keep the paper up to date for the sake 

of its readership, there were also concerns over improving the 
quality of the staff's experience. 

"This way our designers get experience designing on broad- 
sheet," Stensland said. "It's an advantage for designers and 
photographers, because it gives them a lot more flexibility in 
the way they design pages and use photos, as well as graphics." 

The final product impressed staff members as much as it 
did readers. 

"I'm happier than I thought," Doshi said. "I see it as better 
than what I expected. When you're working on it, it's hard to 
see what it will look like. We really didn't know until the first 
issue came out. It's a process of trial and error, and I think it 
turned out really well."

However, the ACES Olympics brought a "back home"

d Done. 


No matter what curriculum you study at the University of 
Illinois, chances are good you will encounter some form of 
online homework in at least one of your classes. Among the 
online tools available to teachers for creating online home- 
work assignments are Blackboard, Mallard, and WebCT. 

Blackboard is an online environment that can be estab- 
lished by instructors to compliment classes. Students are 
given an independent I.D. and password, so the class infor- 
mation is only available to the relevant students. Among the 
many features of this online learning tool is the ability to 
post class related materials in MSWord, WordPerfect, 
PowerPoint, HTML, or PDF file formats. Students can also 
access a class syllabus and class handouts online anytime. 
Also included with Blackboard also has a discussion board for 
topical discussions and class announcements, a grade book, 
and automatic assessment tools for online homework. 

Mallard is a program that was developed at the University 
of Illinois and commonly used by the foreign language 
departments to administer homework and quizzes. Jeremy 
Sterzik, graduate student in Accounting, is familiar with 
Mallard from his Spanish classes. 

"It was helpful because you can do a variety of questions, 
including grammar, and listening questions," he said. "You 
also get immediate feedback, so you know if you understood 
the homework." 

Lisa Trump, graduate student in Animal Genomics, was 
also impressed with the Mallard format. 


"I used it for an online exam, and that was nice because I 
didn't have to take it in a class," she said. "It was more com- 

The program has its downsides as well. 

"I didn't like the late deadlines," Sterzik said. "For exam- 
ple, most homework assignments were due by Friday night at 
midnight. And of course, most of us waited until the last 
minute. I was always afraid that the system would lock up, 
and I would not be able to finish before the deadline." 

WebCT is an alternative to Mallard and Blackboard. Like 
Blackboard and Mallard, WebCT does not require software. 
All a student needs to access it is an internet connection and 
web browser. 

Trump liked using WebCT because the people in her class 
could communicate more effectively. 

"If we have problems, we can post messages on the discus- 
sion board, and the TAs or Professor will answer them," she 
said. "If we can't make it to office hours, we can get them 
answered online." 

Sterzik liked the immediate feedback from quizzes on 
WebCT as well, but the usual technology glitches can effect 
the grade. 

"Once you started a quiz, you had an allotted time to finish 
it," he said. "If your computer locked up, you were in trouble, 
because the timer kept going."

Passing it on... 

Rush seems to be one stressful experience, complete with cutthroat 
antics, all designed to edge out the next person who may be in the way of 
joining the house of your choice. 

"Rush should be one of the most competitive times in the Greek 
community, but it's really the time when we're most unified," said Erin 
McKavanagh, senior in LAS and member of the Alpha Epsilon Phi chapter. 

McKavanagh served as a Recruitment Counselor for this fall's 
sorority rush. The application process for prospective Recruitment 
Counselors began the previous spring semester, when more than 150 
women from each of the 18 sororities on campus that participate in formal 
rush completed applications, wrote essays and interviewed for 60 positions. 

Each September, recruitment counselors lead prospective new 
members (PNMs) through the two-week rush process by organizing an ori- 
entation and accompanying their group of PNMs to each sorority house. 
After each round of rush parties, PNMs rank the houses they visited while 
the houses rank the PNMs, eventually whittling the number of houses the 
PNM visits down to a final three. Recruitment counselors handle this 
ranking process in addition to their other responsibilities. 

The most exciting part of the process was interacting with the 
PNMs and answering their questions, according to McKavanagh. 

"Some girls get nervous about ranking, or they ask [the recruit- 
ment counselors] questions that they don't want to ask while they're at the 
sorority house," McKavanagh said, "but it always helps to talk it out." 

Remembering her own rush experience as a freshman helped her

anticipate the needs of the PNMs she was responsible for, McKavanagh 
said. She remembered one of her Recruitment Counselors as being "out- 
standing" because she would walk with the PNMs between sorority 
houses, and call to check on them if she sensed they were upset with the 
outcome of a ranking. McKavanagh said she tried to give this type of 
encouragement to her PNMs this fall. 

Although she grew close to some of the PNMs she was respon- 
sible for, she could not reveal to any of them which sorority she was a 
member of. She and the other six recruitment counselors from Alpha 
Epsilon Phi removed bumper stickers with their letters from their cars 
together and made sure not to wear any clothing identifying their house 
during rush, she said. 

"You don't realize how important your house is until you have 
to pretend not to be a part of it," McKavanagh said. 

Being a recruitment counselor afforded McKavanagh insight 
and a stronger sense of pride in the whole Greek community, she said. 

The experience allowed her to introduce the PNMs to a com- 
munity that has helped her grow during her time at the University of 
Illinois. It also exposed her to many women from other houses she 
might never have gotten to know if she had not been a Recruitment 

"I felt like a freshman again, but in a good way," she laughed.

After graduating from Syracuse, Maggie McFadden came to the 
University of Illinois to receive her master's in print journalism. 
As part of the deal, her assistantship for the College of 
Communications required that she become a teaching assistant for 
the introductory course, Journalism 150. 

McFadden did have some concerns about her job in the begin- 
ning, but she has gotten over them through being prepared for the 

"I feared the most that the students wouldn't respect me 
because I look so young," she said. "I feared that I didn't have 
enough experience to teach them and that students wouldn't like 
me. I do my homework on what I want to teach them and I do the 
best I can." 



As a TA, it's McFadden's responsibility to teach students in 
her own 50 minute class on Fridays. She develops the lesson plan 
and instructs independently from the class's professor. The work- 
load is hefty, but she is becoming more familiar with the process. 

"Because this is my second semester teaching, things are a lot 
easier. I am kind of in the flow of grading and I use a lot of the 
same handouts and lesson plans I made up last semester," she said. 

McFadden spends about 10 hours a week on her job. Not only 
is she teaching and holding office hours, but she is required to 
grade the assignments written by her students. She says grading is 
the most time consuming and disliked part of her job. In addi- 
tion, she is still expected to perform in her own classes. She has 
found a way to manage her time wisely so assignments and 
teaching assistant work are completed. 

Her job, like many others includes spending time helping stu- 
dents. She has an easygoing attitude and a friendly personality, 
but even the most cordial person can run into problems when 
dealing with so many different people, each with their own agen- 
das. McFadden is fortunate she hasn't had major issues, but there 

is one matter that has been of major importance to her students. 

"I've had a few students concerned about their grades," she 
said. "After they come into my office hours and we talk about 
what they can do to improve and why they got the grade they 
did, they usually don't have a problem. I have never had a stu- 
dents complain really, not yet at least!" 

Respect between her and her students might be what has 
contributed to McFadden's success in the classroom. It's her goal 
to create a professional atmosphere for the students, so they can 
learn the methods needed to become proficient young journal- 
ists. McFadden hopes her teaching techniques will help her stu- 
dents understand what she has been trying to instill them. 

"I really hope my students leave the class being excited about 
journalism," she said. "The worst outcome would be that they 
leave never wanting to go into the field."

The weekend of Sept. 19 trucks, mini vans, and SUV's 
flocked to Champaign-Urbana for the annual Dad's Day week- 
end for a chance to see their kids after being away at school for 
a month. 

Students get the chance to take their dads around campus 
and show them the ropes. But most of all, it's a chance to tail- 
gate, go to the football game and party at the bars. 

Jenny Reed, freshman in LAS, invited her dad to town for 
the Illini football game against California on Saturday. Reed 
and her father tailgated with a group of parents and kids from 
their hometown. No one from the group had tickets for the 
game, so they opted to tailgate all day instead. 

After the game, Reed and her dad went shopping at the 


'■■W.;Ss : 

Illini Union Bookstore and went out to dinner at Applebee's. 
Later that night, they went to Joe's and an after-hours party. 

"I was glad he came down because I hadn't seen him in 
awhile, but it was weird partying with him," Reed said. 

Pat Brannon, sophomore in FAA got the chance to hang 
out and party with his dad all weekend. They went to happy 
hour at Gully's and Station, to the football game, and to a 
cocktail party at Brannon's fraternity house. 

"It was good to sit back and have a beer with [my dad] and 
just talk," Brannon said. 

Some students, like LAS freshman Lyndsay Gant, got to see 
a lot more family than just their dads. Both Gant's parents and 
grandparents came down for the annual weekend. Gant and 
her family went shopping and out to dinner. Gant said getting 
food at Wal-Mart was most exciting. 

"I was ecstatic," Gant said. 

She and her family got a tour of campus. She showed her 
family around and took them to the Quad. She also got the 
chance to show the group where all her classes are. As a fresh- 
man, Gant was particularly glad to have her family in town. 

"It was hard to adjust [to living away from them], so it was 
nice to see them," she said. 

Kevin O'Toole, junior in LAS had both his parents in 
town. O'Toole and his parents went to the game like most fam- 
ilies. They also went to an annual dinner and auction put on 
by his fraternity. Each year, parents bring down items for the 
auction and then other parents get the chance to bid. The 
money raised by the auction is used as a donation to the house. 

After the auction, O'Toole and his parents went to The 
Office for a few drinks. His dad was cracking jokes and he 
entertained all his friends. O'Toole was more entertained with 
the novelty of drinking with his dad. 

"All the parents pretty much got wasted so that was pretty 
funny. There was just a lot of people having fun and there was 
a lot of energy," O'Toole said.

during the Dad's Day football game. 

Freshman in LAS Kelly Callahan had both her parents 
come down for the weekend. They tailgated and played "bags" 
instead of going to the game. That night they went to Kam's 
and an after-hours party. But for Callahan, the best part of the 
weekend was going to shopping. 

"It was exciting. I hadn't been to a mall in awhile," she 

For senior in FAA Craig Ishill, the weekend was all about 
him and his dad. Friday they went out to eat and to the bars. 
Then Saturday they went to the football game and hit the bars 
that night. Ishill and his dad opted to go to Illini Inn in order 
to avoid the long lines at the other bars. It was a memorable 
weekend for Ishill because it was a good time to get to know 
his dad better. He'd never really spent a lot of time alone with 
his dad so he was happy he got that chance. 

"It was the first chance we had to bond ... go out and 
drink and talk man to man," Ishill said.

A New Brand of Co- Eds 




The University of Illinois has a reputation as one of the 
most diverse schools in the Big Ten. The University makes 
efforts to apply a progressive attitude to all aspects of campus 
life, from the number of cultural houses to its accommoda- 
tions for students with disabilities. Indeed, the majority of 
students are satisfied with their decision to attend. However, 
there is one issue that often goes unsolved: the status of gen- 
der roles and equality. Even with the appointment of a female 
chancellor, some suggest that Illinois is lacking in gender 

"I'm not sure what the main obstacle for women on this 
campus is. I think it's a lot of little things that add up," said 
Trish Pruis, president of the Feminist Majority Leadership 
Alliance. "I guess safety is one of the big problems." 

The main problem is that the issue of gender equality on 
campus is believed to be a problem of the past. Sexism is in 
terms of the feminist movement that began in the 1960's and 
culminated in the early 90s. How many of us can forget 
those commercials about sexual harassment in the workplace 
or the campaign to grant equal pay to men and women? 
However, those issues were somehow pushed to the back- 
burner as we moved toward a more liberal society. As that 
process evolved, certain forms of sexism became mistaken for 
progression of gender equality. Just as any other small com- 




munity, the University of Illinois has experienced this as well. 

There are certain practices that contradict the University's 
otherwise progressive stance. For example, the number of 
female professors remains significantly lower than the number 
of males. In a 1999 study conducted by Urbana's Committee 
on the status of women, the University of Illinois ranked near 
the bottom in terms of female faculty representation among 
ten of the largest universities in the Midwest. Faculty member 
Nancy Rich claimed the bias against female academics was 
drawing her out of the profession. The study also pointed to 
inequalities in pay, promotions, and hiring practices. In 2001, 
the Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Women initiat- 
ed steps to rectify the situation, focusing on the recruitment, 
development, and retention of female faculty. 

"I think having a female chancellor has definitely affected 
women's lives," Pruis said. "Ultimately, I think men and 
women working together on all issues would produce the best 
result and foster global understanding." 

Although there have been positive changes, gender still 
remains an important issue. An increase in the number of 
female faculty would be in the best of the University commu- 
nity academically and personally. It encourages women to 
assume leadership roles, and prepares men for experiences 
with women in the workplace. 

Gender inequality seems to have filtered into the social 
scene at U of I as well. Kams, a local bar, places regular ads in 
the Daily Illini for catfight nights, where bar goers watch two 
women battle it out in front of an intoxicated, predominately 
male audience. One might argue that this promotes gender 
equality by allowing women to use their bodies freely and par- 
ticipate in male-oriented sports. Yet, it can reduce the women 
to objects and have negative effects on its young audience. 

The status of gender equality at the University if Illinois is 
an issue that should not be ignored. Making it a topic of dis- 
cussion would be beneficial to the entire community and 
prospective students.

It could he argued that Sept. 27 was the push-point in the downward 
spiral that characterized Illini football in 2003. After falling to Missouri, 
University of California-Los Angeles and Cal State by a combined 17 
points, Illinois was hoping to bring back some of the luck they had flirted 
with in the home opener, when they defeated the Division I-AA Illinois 
State Redbirds. Luck, not to mention Wisconsin Quarterback Dwayne 
Smith, would not have it, and the Ilini fell once again, getting badgered 
38-20 while rushing 21 times for a mere 64 yards. 

"We thought we were prepared for Wisconsin," said Jon Beutjer, senior 
quarterback. "We just didn't play well. It was a tough loss; we thought we 
had them." 

Despite Wisconsin's 21-0 lead at halftime, the game looked within 
reach as Illinois crept to 28-20 with 5:14 left in the third quarter. While 
temporarily narrowing the gap may have been enough to keep most of the 
fans in the stands, it fell short of adding a much-needed tally to the "win" 

"We knew we could still make a run for a bowl game being 1-4," 
Beutjer said, "We knew we had to keep fighting at that point." 



inois Football 




No matter how hard the Illini fought, the margin of loss 
widened in the following games, and dreams of glory faded 
fast. As the team's record got uglier and uglier, it would 
have made sense for the players' morale to go down the 
drain, but Head Coach Ron Turner said they continued to 
hold on to hope throughout the season. ■ 

"They're obviously disappointed, frustrated, but they're 
hanging together," Turner said. 

Keeping their chins up was no light task as the weeks 
wore on and the situation became dire. Chris Pazan, fresh- 
man quarterback, acknowledges the struggle, but makes no 

"It's been hard this season because we are so close every 
game," Pazan said. "A penalty here or there, a missed 
assignment, or missed tackle or throw, and it seems like the 
other team just takes advantage of our mistakes. In the mat- 
ter of injuries, they are not an excuse. I think we just need 
to focus more on the small details and get things corrected 
and learn from our mistakes." 

Learn they did throughout the torturous three-month 
season, adjusting to each defeat as it came. 

"We had a lot of high expectations coming into this sea- 
son," Quaterback JonBeutjer said. "We set some high goals. 
As we didn't reach our goals, we'd have to set new ones and 
just take it game by game."

trounced the Illini, Turner never saw each subsequent game as 
anything but a chance for victory. 

"Every week we come out prepared to win," Turner said. 
"Everyday we're preparing to win a football game." 

Despite the undeniable hardship, the squad reaped many 
good things from their losing season. While it was often diffi- 
cult to stomach the lack of improvement from months of off- 
season conditioning, Pazan said everyone is ready to get back to 
work in preparation for August 2004. 

"In times of adversity, that's when character shines and we 
have a lot of character on this team," Pazan said. "Going into 
next year, we are going to have to just work real hard in the off- 
season, and get the fundamentals corrected and mastered." 

Work they will, and despite his claims that this was never 
intended to be a rebuilding year, returning 80% of the squad 
should be a distinct advantage next season, Turner said.

tremendously talented young group, and they're getting a lot

Music ^tfucy 





If you ask the average University of Illinois student where 
they get their music from, chances are they won't mention Sam 
Goody or the Virgin Megastore. They will probably rattle off a 
list of web sites like Kazaa, Blubster, and WinMX. This is not 
unique to the U of I campus. In fact, it is representative of a 
growing trend of music consumers using the internet to down- 
load and copy music for free. Its popularity can be attributed to 
its convenience and widespread accessibility. Anyone with inter- 
net access has the potential to commit music piracy. 
Downloading for free has become so common that some seem to 
have forgotten the activity is illegal. 

The Recording Industry Association of America took drastic 
steps earlier this year to remind music consumers that piracy is a 
crime. In July 2003, the RIAA subpoenaed Boston College and 
several other universities after suspecting at least three students 
were participating in illegal file sharing. They also put pressure 
on universities nationwide to take a larger role in combating the 

As a result, the University of Illinois took measures to pre- 
vent piracy on our campus. In spring 2003, University adminis- 
trators sent out a mass e-mail reminding the school community 
that piracy is a crime. Students who did not heed the warning 
received a subsequent e-mail. 

Osei Poku, a junior in LAS, participated in legal download- 
ing, but he encountered problems when others began uploading 
and sharing his files without his permission. University adminis- 
trators sent him an e-mail asking him to remove Kazaa from his 
computer. If he did not, Poku said, they threatened to discon- 
nect his Ethernet service in his dorm room. 

Some may find it odd that students would continue to partic- 
ipate in an illegal activity that could have harsh consequences. 
The majority seem to believe the benefits far outweigh the draw- 
backs. Consumers enjoy the ability to pick and choose from a 
variety of songs. Piracy gives them more freedom, allowing them 
to sample an artist's album before going to the store and pur- 
chasing the entire CD. Others complain CD prices are too high. 
Even avid music lovers refuse to pay $20 for a CD with only 12 

A number of students resent the way the RIAA is handling 
the issue, which makes them even less likely to stop. They view 
the lawsuits as an invasion of privacy. According to The 
Heights, the Boston College newspaper, the university filed a 
motion to squash the subpoenas in defense of students' privacy. 
In the eyes many college students, the RIAA represents a ruth- 
less authority figure out to get anyone regardless of the circum- 
stances. In fact a 12-year-old girl and a 71 -year-old grandfather 
were recipients of two of the first series of lawsuits filed. 

In a September 2003 article, "This Time They Mean 


Stendents relax as they listen to 
digitally acquired music via the 

Business," Daily Illini Opinions columnist Kelly Rooney voiced 
his disgust for the Association's tactics. He claimed the 261 law- 
suits filed in one day were all "part of a clever scare tactic to 
show people of our age that they'll take down everyone from our 
grandparents to our little cousins." Indeed, to some college stu- 
dents, the RIAA may seem like the real villain. 

Apparently, the scare tactics worked in the favor of the 
RIAA, immediately following the filing of the lawsuits. In an 
August 29 article titled, "Reduction in File Sharing Follows 
University Crackdown," the University of Virginia's Cavalier 
Daily, reported a sharp decline. According to the Nielson Net 
Ratings, there was a 15 percent decline in traffic on Kazaa and 
Morpheus. Obviously, some students are taking the RIAA seri- 

John Gable, a senior in engineering, responded to Rooney 's 
article with his own letter to the Daily Illini. Reflecting a much 
more favorable opinion of the RIAA, Gable stated the 
Association did not file lawsuits irregardless of extenuating cir- 
cumstances; they simply were not aware of them. 

In the end, music piracy is a bigger issue than the University 
of Illinois. It is an ongoing battle between the music industry 
and its consumers. Regardless of which side you are on, one 
thing remains clear. College students are always looking for a 
bargain. So far, "free," is the best deal around.

This year marked the 50th anniversary of the landmark 
Brown v. the Board of Education case. The final decision in 
the case ordered the nationwide integration of public schools. 
To many, Brown v. the Board of Education may seem like a 
part of our country's distant past. However, the effects of the 
Supreme Court decision in 1954 had a profound impact at 
University or Illinois. 

Today the University of Illinois is an exceptionally diverse 
campus. Just taking a stroll on the Quad, you are likely to see 
members of various races and ethnic group speaking their 
native languages. The variety of cultures on our campus is 
part of what makes the University unique. In fact, it is recog- 
nized as one of the Big Ten's most diverse campuses. 
Nevada Street is home to a number of cultural houses, includ- 
ing the African American Cultural Program and La Casa 
Latino Cultural. After years of work, there is now a Native 
American Cultural Center on campus. It is difficult to imag- 
ine the University without these symbols of our diverse com- 

It may be difficult to believe that in the 1950's there was 
very little diversity on campus. The University of Illinois was 
not immune to the culture of racism that pervaded American 
society, and it took a great deal of struggle and change to 
make the University what it is today. Black students joined 
together to demand more equality, and the Brown vs. the 
Board of Education victory gave them the strength to fight 
injustice. Eventually, their perseverance led the administra- 
tion to make positive changes.

Law and Education Conference, "Promises 
to Keep Brown v. Board and Equal 
Educational Opportunity" 

In 1968, the University of Illinois introduced Project 500, 
created in response to the Higher Education Act of 1965. In 
an attempt to create a more diverse learning environment, 
the University dedicated itself to recruiting 500 new minority 
students. According to the Oct. 15 Daily Illini article, 
"Project 500 Celebrates 35 Years," current University of 
Illinois students went back to their communities and recruit- 
ed 565 college-age students from a variety of black and latino 
communities. This bold step contributed greatly to the diver- 
sity of our campus and set an example for other schools to fol- 

Chancellor Nancy Cantor chose to dedicate the 2003- 
2004 academic year to the positive "changes that flowed" 
from the Brown v. Board of Education case. The Brown 
Jubilee Commemoration Committee organized a list of speak- 
ers, conferences, lectures, seminars, exhibits, and perfor- 
mances in honor of the historic decision. 

In October, Peter Irons, the author of "Jim Crow's 
Children", spoke about the effects of the Jim Crow era and 
the changes that have taken place since then. In November, 
Frederick Marx, the renowned director and producer of the 
movie "Hoop Dreams", spoke about present and past race 

relations. In February, Paul Finkelman, distinguished professor 
at the University of Tulsa College of Law, held a discussion 
about the social and legal status of segregation at the time of 
the Supreme Court decision. 

The African- American Cultural Program sponsored a 
number of events commemorating the case. Oct. 13-17 was 
designated as Project 500 week. It featured discussions about 
race relations, as well as speeches from the Freedom Riders of 
the 1960s. Students who participated in the events acquired a 
greater appreciation for the founders of the Civil Rights 
movement. At the time of the Civil Rights movement, the 
Freedom Riders were young adults like many students at the 
university. The brave minorities risked their lives, traveling 
through the most dangerous areas of the rural south, to fight 

In a Daily Illini article detailing the events Clarence 
Shelley, Assistant to the Chancellor, said it best: "It's not just 
a part of African- American history, but a part of everyone's

The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community gained 
recognition this year, both through controversy and through awareness cam- 
paigns. Due to the budget crisis, the University cut many classes and services. 
The beginning of the year for LGBT faculty began with much discussion on 
how to work around the financial crunch. 

Some students outside LGBT felt the benefit package to gay lifetime part- 
ners took too much money away from classes. However, the LGBT community 
felt that equal rights, which should have existed in the beginning, could not 
wait another year. The benefit package, according to Curt McKay, co-director 
for the Office of LGBT Concerns, is only 1 to 2 percent of the benefit budget, 
and was nowhere near the $400,000 figure originally projected for the plan 
because only four people signed up. The package also did not equal benefits 
provided for straight couples. Both partners would have to have health insur- 
ance, and the University would pick up the tab for the remainder. Some state 
legislators wrote letters to Gov. Rod Blagojevich, asking him to intervene on 
the issue. McKay also gave some radio interviews to champion the cause. 

The LGBT office strove for cooperation between the LGBT groups on cam- 
pus. Members representing the Registered Student Organizations, including 
Sexual Orientation & Legal Issues Society, the Ally network (a network of fac- 
ulty supporters of LGBT students), QueerGrads and Pride (the on-campus 
unspecific LGBT group) now meet with the LGBT office and the Coming Out 
Support Group, OutZone and the Illini Union Board LGBT Committee to dis- 
cuss how to form bonds within the community. At the first meeting, members 
agreed to bring back the coffee house at the Welsey Foundation. The coffee 
house became a social staple of the LGBT community until its demise this year 
due to the lack of volunteers. It reopened in November. (Continued on Page

Oct. 5-11 was National Coming Out Week. The main event was 
Oct. 10, the day before National Coming Out Day. DJ Blaha, political 
chair of PRIDE, planned a rally in the middle of the Quad. The rain- 
bow-colored flag and members of PRIDE, LGBT office, straight support- 
ers and 18 new Ally members met to gain visibility within the 
University community. A simultaneous anti-Chief rally made attention 
grabbing difficult, and members struggled to make themselves heard over 
the loud demonstration at the north side of the Quad. PRIDE President 
Samantha Gaines read a poem. Talks ranged from political action to 
religion. Even with the Chief rally, attendees hugged the flag, bought 
pins and showed the campus they would be noticed. 

"We're the last minority group that it's still ok to oppress," McKay 

As part of the minority awareness campaign through the Brown v. 
Board of Education celebration, a local, nationally known, award-win- 
ning lesbian and feminist chorus, Amasong, put on concerts during the 
remembrance. A documentary, according to the Amasong website, aired 
on WILL-TV on Nov. 7 and 9. The documentary, made by Jay 
Rosenstein, is entitled "Singing Out". The program also aired nation- 
wide on PBS later in the year. 

The rally, while the central focus of the week for PRIDE, was not the 
only activity. SOLIS and PRIDE both attended "The Laramie Project," 
a play at Parkland College about Matthew Shepard. Shepard, a 21 -year- 
old student from the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, beaten and 
left to die, chained to a fence outside Laramie, Wyo. He was murdered 
because he was openly gay. The play uses quotes from the students and 
residents of Laramie, and puts these quotes together to show how the 
community reacted to the murder and subsequent trial.

Apartment Hunting 

Most students think the beginning of the spring 
semester, or even the beginning of the year depending 
on where you want to live, is the start of the apartment 
rush. Olga Anaya was someone who felt a time con- 
straint during the fall semester and signed a lease with 
Gabe's Place after her future roommate said the apart- 
ment was do-able. 

"I didn't even care where we lived, as long as it 
wasn't the dorms, so I signed," she said. 

The apartment rush, whether a myth or not, is defi- 
nitely a pressure point used to lease apartments early. 

Esther Pratt, coordinator of the Tenant Union, 
explained the strange circumstances of the apartment 
market at the University. She said the good news that 
one and two-bedroom options are definitely still avail- 
able second semester, and three and four-bedroom 
options can still be found. The bad news is many land- 
lords ask for renewal decisions by Oct. 1 and pressure 
students in the residence halls to sign for their apart- 
ments relatively early. 

"Grad students moving to campus are just amazed 
that it's even legal for a renewal decision when the 
tenants have only lived in the apartment for six 
weeks," Pratt said. 

Opposite Page Bryan Russell, of Bankier Apartments, shows Dan 

Maratto, Freshman in LAS, an apartment on campus. 

Top Left Russell and Maratto inspect the kitchen. 

Top Right The leasing office for Campus Property Management. 

Phil Bailey, a self-described "soft, easy-going land- 
lord" on campus said that he deals with the problem of 
renewal contracts systematically. 

Every year, he keeps a graph of how many apart- 
ments are rented each year. He also asked each tenant 
if he or she will be coming back. They can check four 
options: yes, no, unsure and other. Bailey shows the 
"no" apartments first, and much, much later, he calls 
the "unsure" tenants to tell them they need to decide 
soon. Bailey also said retention for graduate students is 
always questionable, and they try to save the apart- 
ment for those situations. 

Both Pratt and Bailey felt the early time creates 
possible roommate conflicts. Between the fall or spring 
signing and next year, the tenants often change. 

While Bailey works to eliminate pressure on stu- 
dents, part of the problem is that students come in so 

"We'll have people coming in September," he said. 

The mad rush in the tenant union is October Pratt 
said, when they are three times busier than they are in 
any other month. 

In retrospect, the time constraints, real or imagined, 
are definitely used as a selling technique to get students 
in the door and signing papers early.

Technology invades every aspect of campus life, and 
improvements and upgrades in systems aim to make life bet- 
ter in the future for students and faculty. 

Nuala Koetter is a special project librarian. She uses the 
technology found in the Grainger Engineering Library to 
duplicate prints for the rare image library. This library scans 
everything from historical maps to Japanese prints from 

She uses a Titan II wide-format scanner by Vidar to digi- 
tize and print special maps and photos. The scanner can 
copy images up to 40 inches, and has three cameras to scan 
the picture and three rollers. After the scan is completed, 
Koetter prints a copy of the image on a wide-format HP 

She has more technology downstairs, where she operates 
slide-scanners, regular scanners and a copy stand with a digi- 
tal camera, for images that cannot be placed on a flatbed. 

Ul-Integrate, over the course of the next five years, will 
bring numerous advances to campus computer programs 


"On the whole I haven't had that hard 

a time with it. I'm figuring it out, and 

its ok," said Marsha Biddle 

used for administrative functions. It will replace old pro- 
grams, like UI Direct. Mundane tasks, like paying tuition or 
registering for classes, will utilize the new system. 

"The Ul-Integrate project will put into place an integrat- 
ed system that is important for several reasons," said Nicole 
Udzenija, spokeswoman for the project. 

"Primarily, the University runs a patchwork of many sep- 
arate, aging systems to perform key financial, employee and 
student service functions," she said. 

She said many of these old systems were near failure or 
becoming impossible to maintain. 

The move also marks a change to a web-based system. 
Students and staff will no longer have to download pro- 
grams like UI Direct. Everything from personal informa- 
tion, financial aid, registration and records information will 
be available through the new system. 

As for problems with the upgrade, Udzenija said, "the 
banner system is already being used to support a variety of 
different tasks. However, prior to any new component 
being activated, extensive testing is done to ensure it will 
work as we expect it to work." 
The University expects to complete the transition by 2005.

_ illini 







In the beginning there was Illini House, a small 
tutoring organization formed in 1963. Forty years later, 
the club has become much more. Now called Volunteer 
Illini Project, the student organization is the largest on 
campus and runs 15 separate community service pro- 

With their hands in arts outreach, Best Buddies, 
blood drives, community justice, daycare, environmental 
work, I-Vote and urban development, this organization 
has grown exponentially. 

On Oct. 4, members of VIP, both old and new, came 
together at the Illini Union to celebrate the organiza- 
tion's anniversary. Displays of each project circled the 
room, with directors standing nearby waiting to answer 
questions. The event featured three speakers: Susan 
Connelly, former VIP full-time secretary, Gaylord 
Hatch, former University Dean and first VIP sponsor, 
and Hank Walter, associate director of the Illini Union 
and former advisor, all spoke about their experiences 
with VIP. 

Laura Brayton, Chair or VIP said the three alumni 
were asked to attend the event because all are living leg- 
nds in VIP. 

"We do remember those who have touched us," 
Brayton said. 

She opened up the event by introducing the three 
speakers, and giving a brief speech herself. She 
explained the event's purpose was "celebrating 40 years 
jf peace, unity, and service." 

After Brayton, each VIP alum shared anecdotes from 

their time with the organization. Hatch told stories 
about VIP's beginnings and attributed the success of the 
group to all the students involved. 

"I'm so proud of you and so happy I was associated 
with you," Hatch said. 

Connelly and Walter followed with talk of friend- 
ship, fellowship, and the unique attributes of VIP. 
Walter spoke about what makes the program special, cit- 
ing the students' contributions and commitment as main 
reasons. He also commended VIP, saying the 
Champaign-Urbana area has been "immeasurably 
touched because of VIP." 

Following the speeches, members dispersed across the 
Champaign-Urbana area for different volunteer activi- 
ties with Illinois Food Bank, Restoration Urban 
Ministries, Swann Special Care, and Urbana Parks Seed 

Though the theme of the day was giving to the com- 
munity, there was much talk about what volunteering 
can give to the volunteer. For Brayton, the best part 
about volunteering is the knowledge that she is helping 

"Just knowing that you made a difference... no matter 
how small, it's important to them," she said. "Knowing 
it's part of a greater good... knowing my work is con- 
tributing to peace, unity, and change."

an Observant Jewish Woman 




A young woman sits, veiled from the prying eyes 
of men by a sheer curtain strung across the middle of the 
room. She sits, legs crossed modestly, with the Jewish book 
of prayer open in her lap, quietly singing the words with 
the rest of the people in the room. The Hebrew words are 
beautiful and poetic. Through the curtain, the men bob up 
and down in rhythm to the prayer. Some of them wear 
yamakuhs, others the traditional black hat and trademark 
facial hair. 

The service is nothing like conventional Christian 
worship. There is no sermon, no lecture, nothing in 
English. The entire hour-long celebration is one long lulla- 
by, praising the wonders God has provided and praying for 
peace. The male side of the room is standing room only, 
which means there will be no delay in starting the service. 
According to Orthodox Jewish rules, the service cannot 
start with out a mignon, a gathering of at least ten men. 
They have had problems before, not having enough present 
to start and having to go upstairs to the conservative ser- 
vices being held in the main part of the building, and ask 
for some men to join them. 

Rachael is one of five women in the room. She 
whispers to her friend. The boy her friend has a crush on 
has just walked in, and she wants to make sure that she 
knows he's here. They have a brief, nearly silent conversa- 
tion before returning to sing with the rest of the people at 
the service. 

She lives a life that may seem out of place in a 
college setting. Rachael is one of the few college students 
who will show up to a class at 8 a.m. dressed in a nice skirt, 
blouse and wearing make-up. She's never eaten at 
McDonald's in the Student Union's food court, or any 
McDonald's for that matter, and she's never been to any of 
the campus bars on a Friday night. 

Rachael is an orthodox Jew. She strictly observes 
the Jewish Sabbath, performing no work, not even flipping 
a light switch from sundown Friday until sundown 
Saturday. She keeps Kosher, keeps her legs covered at all 
times and tries to avoid touching men outside her immedi- 
ate family.

"A modern woman 
trying to reconcile her beliefs." 



She is a modern woman trying to reconcile her beliefs and the 
religious traditions she loves so much, with the life of a college stu- 
dent. She does the typical college student activities... she goes to 
the bars, attends parties and stresses about schoolwork. However, 
you will never see her wearing pants; modesty codes in Orthodox 
Judaism dictate that women wear skirts as a reminder of their femi- 
ninity. By remembering they are women, they will be more likely 
to act in accordance with lady-like standards. It also reminds them 
that because they are women, their presence can have a distracting 
effect on men. She says that sometimes she feels strange not to be 
able to wear jeans to class, or wear sweats when she doesn't feel 
like getting dressed up, but most people tend not to notice. 

College, however, was when she realized the very traditional 


way she chooses to live her life might have problems reconciling with a modern 
world. Living at college was the first time she had to go grocery shopping at 
non-Kosher markets. At home, there were plenty and no one had to look hard 
to find what they could eat. In Champaign, there are no such stores. At first, it 
took her hours to go through the store finding the kosher foods she needed, but 
now she knows exactly what she's looking for. 

She owns two sets of dishes — one for meat and one for dairy. As part of 
keeping kosher, meat and dairy, not even the dishes or utensils they are served 
with, are allowed to be put together. That means no cheeseburgers, pepperoni 
pizza or steak and mashed potatoes, if they have milk added to them. The two 
sets of dishes cannot even be washed in the same dishwasher together. She 
must wait at least four hours after eating one to consume the other so the food 
doesn't mix in her stomach. 

There are still times when she gets frustrated about not being able to check 
her email on a Friday night or go to one of her sorority's functions, but in the 
end, it just feels right. It's like knowing you're right or left handed... it feels 
natural for her to be in this place and for her to live life as she does. It is not 
awkward for her to give up fast food or Friday nights, it's a part of her life that 
has become routine, familiar and comforting. 

With all the sacrifices and restrictions she complies with for her religion, 
she now firmly believes her beliefs are worth it. And walking home from the 
temple on a rainy Friday night, she is content. Her stomach is full of kosher 
food, and her soul full with a sense of peace and serenity.

Nobel Prize 

This year, Professors Anthony Leggett and Paul 
Lauterbur became the eighth and ninth University 
faculty members to be awarded the prestigious Nobel 
Prize. Leggett won the 2003 Nobel Prize in physics 
and Lauterbur the 2003 Nobel Prize in physiology. 

Leggett, a faculty member since 1982, shares the 
prize with Alexei Abrikosov of the Argonne National 
Laboratory in Argonne, IL, and Vitaly Ginzburg of the 
P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute in Moscow. Lauterbur 
shares his prize with Sir Peter Mansfield of England's 
University of Nottingham. 

Leggett found out he had won when he received a 
phone call at 4:40 a.m. 

"For the first thirty seconds, I thought it was a 
hoax!" he said. 

Actually winning the prize had crossed his mind, 
but he didn't have time to think about it, he said. 

In the six weeks after the prize announcement, 
Leggett had little time to continue his work because 
he had to juggle interview requests and invitations, as 
well as prepare for the Nobel Prize ceremonies. He 
gave his Nobel Lecture at Stockholm University in 
Sweden on Dec. 8, and the awards ceremony was held 
for Dec. 10. 

The prize was awarded jointly to Abrikosov, 
Ginzburg and Leggett "for pioneering contributions to 
the theory of superconductors and superfluids," accord- 

Anthony Leggett. the 2003 Nobel prize winner in physics 


Winners 2003 

iul Lauterbur, the 2003 Nobel Prize Winner in physiology 

ing to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. 
Ahrikosov and Ginzburg concentrated on supercon- 
ductors, while most of Leggett's work centered on 
superfluids. At very low temperatures, some elements 
lose viscosity and can flow without resistance. These 
are known as superfluids. 

Leggett joked that there are "zero practical applica- 
tions" of his work. Kidding aside, he cited the use of 
superfluid helium 3 in meteorology and the determina- 
tion of fundamental aspects of nature. 

"Some also question whether MRI [magnetic reso- 
nance imaging] would be actually possible without 
superconducting magnets," he said. 

Lauterbur 's prizewinning work is also related to 
MRI, but it is used in medical diagnostics. 

A University faculty member since 1985, 
Lauterbur's research "made it possible to create two- 
dimensional images of structures that could not be 
visualized by other techniques," according to the 
Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institute. Not only did 
he pioneer the non-invasive imaging technique, but 
he is also responsible for their application to the field 
of medicine. 

Lauterbur also gave his Nobel lecture in Sweden 
on Dec. 8.

Early in the Oct. 24 game, women's soccer looked strong, but 
possibly not strong enough to defeat Northwestern — a team 
with a lot of motivation that night. Time and again, the Illini 
took shots on goal, but never carefully enough or close enough 
to score in the first half. Despite Illinois' clear dominance over 
the ball, the Wildcats, who needed a win to enter Big Ten tour- 
nament play, seemed to be holding their then No. 15-ranked 
opponents right where they wanted them, even if it was just by 

"We really came out strong in the first half, but the fear was 
that we left them with a lot of help," said Coach Janet Rayfield 
said. "We had put ourselves in a position that their emotion 
could be a factor. 

Illinois would not let that become an issue. Emerging moti- 
vated and determined after the half, the Illini set a path of 
destruction. When time ran out, they had confidently routed 
their Evanston opponents 4-0, upping their record to 11-3-2 
overall and 7-1-2 in the Big Ten. 

"The first two goals took their spirit out of the game," 
Layfield said of Northwestern. "It became a soccer game more 

about ability and organization than emotion." 

No one in the crowd was caught off guard either, as the Illini 
sealed the deal on their best Big Ten finish ever, pulling in the 
number two spot in conference. 

Twelve months earlier, things looked very different, as the 
team fell short of earning a place in the Big Ten tournament. 
Shortly after the end of that season, Rayfield and her staff began 
implementing a number of changes, primarily focusing on the 
team's defense. 

"Our attitude toward defense was a huge part of our success 
this year," said Leisha Alcia, Junior goalkeeper. "A lot had to do 
with setting our goals in the off-season and then working 
towards them." 

More specifically, the team altered their formation to empha- 
size defensive play, while also working on individual skills. 

"We changed our formation from three to now four in the 
back which is good, because you're not always engaged with a 
striker," Alcia said. "We also worked to improve our individual 
defensive level." 

Another key to the record-breaking season was leadership on

100 percent, the 
Women's Varsity Soccer 
team was determined to 

and off the field, dominated by the team's four seniors. 

"Some of our leaders from last year have really grown into 
that role," Rayfield said. "The senior class as a whole has been a 
stabilizing factor for us." 

Rayfield also emphasized that the younger players have man- 
ged to step up and help the team, which Eva Strickland, fresh- 
nan forward credits to the upperclassmen's leadership and men- 

"I really like the team; it's a close-knit bunch," Strickland

Rather than folding under what might be perceived as pres- 
ure to live up to a number 1 2 ranking and one of the best 
ecords in team history, the team took everything they faced this 
all in stride. The season ended unexpectedly in the first round 
)f the NCAA finals in a 2-0 loss to Western Michigan. Despite 
he wrenching loss and abrupt end to the season, the women 
emain solid.

next year... again 

Avid fans tune in to what they 
hoped would be the game that 
propelled the Cubs to the World 



No television or radio was needed to know what was happening in 
Wrigleyville the night of Oct. 14, 2003. Shouts of elation and dismay were 
audible from almost any point on campus, as the Chicago Cubs faced the 
Florida Marlins in game six of the National League Championship Series. 
In what seemed almost surreal for most Chicagoans, as well as baseball fans 
across the U.S., a glimmer of hope sparkled in the distance for the pride of 
the North side to pull out a miraculous trip to the World Series. 

With just five outs left in the game and a 3-0 lead, the impossible 
seemed within reach as Marlins switch-hitter Luis Castillo stepped up to 
the left side of the plate. Other than a runner on second, the coast was 
clear, and because few fans in C-U expected anything less than another 
strikeout, the celebrations were already getting underway. However, what 
happened next would change the course of baseball history. 

"I was angry beyond belief, and I still am," said Jim Furey, freshman in 
FAA. "I don't think I'm ever going to get over it." 

In a play that immediately became the topic of discussion everywhere, 


from radio talk shows to lecture halls, Cubs fan Steve Bartman reached out 
of the stands towards the ball which was sailing through left field, collided 
with Cubs fielder Moises Alou and set off what many would see as the 
downward spiral in Chicago's quest to end a 97-year World Series title 

"At first I did blame him just because I was angry," said Matt Mason, 
junior in LAS, said of the controversial fan. "But then I realized it wasn't 
really his fault, and the cubs still had another game to play." 

Another game would not be enough to redeem that fateful eighth 
inning of blunders, and fans like Mason would be left looking for scape- 
goats. Attributing the Cubs' bad fortune to a hex placed on them by Billy 
Goat Tavern owner "Billy Goat" Sianis, when he was told his pet goat 
could not enter Wrigley Field, Mason made a list of ten ways he believed 
he could help break the curse. The list included punching a goat in the 
face and streaking through the quad. 

"The Marlins series was a tear-jerker and something needed to be done 
for next year," Mason said. "Plus I'm superstitious, so it seemed like the 
right thing to do. Each were important in their own way, perhaps most 
important though was shaving my eyebrows. It got the ball rolling." 

Even the most devout believers in the Curse of the Billy Goat had to 
accept that more than just luck and superstition will be needed for the 
Cubs to improve upon 2003 's success next year. 

"Having a good, solid, and consistent bullpen, that's the most impor- 
tant," Mason said. "They blew a lot of games that way this year." 

Like many of the eternal optimists who fill Wrigley Field in both good 
seasons and bad, Furey believes the outlook for next fall shines bright. 

"They're definitely gonna make it next year," Furey said. "They already 
acquired two excellent ball players. They got Derrick Lee, the first base- 
man for the Florida Marlins, and pitcher LaTroy Hawkins. So next year 
should be good."

Cross Country 

Illlnl Invitational 



In a year that seemed mostly about tremendous individual successes con- 
trasted against instances of injury and disappointment, the men's and women's 
cross country teams ran into a number of significant changes. 

The two teams had a lot of adjusting to do in 2003, with a combined roster 
composed of 50 percent freshman. While the women only won one race of the 
season and the men were unable to hold a team lead at any point in the year, 
both squads boasted a promising young contingent. 

"We've got a couple good freshmen, Trent Hoerr and Eric Tietz," said Coach 
Paul Pilkington. "Both are good freshman who will become very good distance 
runners. Jason (Bill, a sophomore) placed fourth in one of the biggest invita- 
tionals in the country. He was running fantastically until this problem came 

Bill, who was a leader for the men throughout the season, began suffering 
from a side stitch halfway through the fall. The problem made it difficult for 
him to breathe while running and hampered his speed, he said. 

"I started off great, running with a lot of people they didn't think I could run 
with," Bill said. "The last five meets were really a disappointment for me; I was 
fighting a problem with my stomach muscle and I didn't do as well as I could 

However, Bill's fourth-place finish at the Great American Cross Country 
Festival in Cary, N.C. foreshadowed the team's potential in coming seasons. 

"It was the first time this year that I ran against some of the top competitors 
in the nation," Bill said. "I ran with many all-nationals and beat many all- 



■ationals as well." 

For the women, freshman Casie Hunt exemplified the team's 
ossibilities when she qualified to run in the NCAA 
championships, a level the entire group hopes to reach next 

"I just tried to approach it like any other race," Hunt said. 
There is that kind of feeling that it's different, especially when 
ou step up to the start with the top runners in the nation. I 
lought I was prepared, but I ended up having my slowest race 
j r the season." 

Both teams shone brightly at the Pack It Up Illini Challenge 
eld at the Arboretum Oct. 18. Bill and Hoerr placed first and 
lird, respectively, for the men, while Hunt, junior Jaime 
urilli, freshman Pam Wolf, and junior Casie Simpson led the 
omen. Pilkington said the home crowd plays an important 
de in psyching up the runners. 

"Because we travel quite a ways to compete, it's a chance for 
ends and family to see the guys race," Pilkington said. "It gets 
!i em excited. Instead of being up in North Carolina, where 
: )body knows who you are, you come here and get hundreds of 
] ople cheering for you." 

Bill said both familiarity with the course and emotional 
iotivation encouraged the teams to do well at the meet they 
1 isted. 

"We did workouts over there at least once, maybe twice a 
I ek," Bill said. "And besides that, you never want to get beat 
c! your home course." 

Pilkington said the coutse at the Arboretum, which was pre- 
viously not the Illini's home course, has distinct advantages 
over the old home course in Savoy. 

"It's a much more difficult terrain," Pilkington said. "Savoy 
is a golf course, and it's just flat as can be. We have a decent 
hill we hit three times, the terrain is difficult, and we do a loop 
so it's a great spectator course. It's what cross country should be 

Hunt said the women are hoping to build on the potential 
they exemplified last fall and expect to make a major impact in 
the next season. 

"As a team, we dfinitely want to qualify for nationals," Hunt 
said. "We'll definitely have more miles on our legs; we'll be 
pretty strong from track and the off-season." 

The men's team has many of the same hopes, and through 
recruiting and improvement during the off-season, they plan to 
reach the next level of competition. 

"We just gotta have the guys develop more," Pilkington said. 
"We need some more runners up there with Jason, and we will 
have that due to recruiting and our current freshmen stepping 
up. If you look at cross country across the nation, we're in a 
hotbed for distance runners. We need to get up to where we're 
competing like we should in the Big Ten. When we do that, 
we'll be one of the top teams in the nation, and that's our ulti- 
mate goal."

On Oct. 18, "The Complex Rock Tour" played Assembly Hall. This rock 'n 
roll inspired tour featured the award-winning Blue Man Group, as well as special 
guest appearances by Tracy Bonham and Venus Hum. 

The Blue Man Group's "Complex Rock Tour" is a performance that contains 
an eclectic mix of theater and music. The theatricals of the show are centered 
around the theme "How to become a rock band." Sporadically throughout the 
performance, an instructional clip appeared on a video screen, giving lessons on 
how to become a rock band. The three members of the Blue Man Group acted 
out these lessons, and the whole show became a story of the trio's quest to 
become a band. 

The concert began with songs performed by Tracy Bonham, a classically 
trained violinist turned female rock artist. Bonham is best known for her hit 
single "Mother, Mother" from 1996. 

After Bonham's performance, the second act took the stage. Venus Hum, a 
rock/electfonica group from Nashville, Tenn. performed. Venus Hum is made 


up of lead singer Annette Strean, keyboardist and guitarist Tony Miracle, and 
Kip Kubin on the synthesizer. 

A brief intermission followed, in which two scrolling marquees, situated on 
either side of the stage, entertained the waiting audience by arguing with each 
other. They also tried to entice audience members to go into the lobby to buy 
food and merchandise. 

Shortly after, the lights of Assembly Hall went dark, and a cheer came from 
the audience. A brilliant array of lights blazed through the Hall and Blue Man 
Group appeared. The group is comprised of three lead performers, dressed all in 
black, with blue heads and hands. Their movements are alien, robot-like, and 
they do not speak. A backup band consisting of eight to ten musicians playing 
guitars and drums accompanied them. 

The theme of "How to become a rock band" leads the mysterious blue men 
through cliched actions of rock stars, which become quite humorous, when per- 
formed by the robot like blue men. They learn such actions as jumping up and 
down, heads banging, and waving their fists. During a number of points in the 
performance, audience members were asked to come on stage to help the group 
perform a certain function. At one point, a balding, middle-aged man and a 
young girl helped to show the group how to dance. At another point, while fol- 
lowing the rule "Make contact with the audience members in the cheap seats," 
the blue men ran up into the highest sections of Assembly Hall, to greet the 
audience in the nosebleed section. 

However, the antics of the show were eclipsed by the music. Using a large 
apparatus consisting of pipes of varying length, size, and shape, the three blue 
men pounded away, creating highly energetic tunes. They also used a series of 
barrels with light emanating from the center that sprayed a colored mist when 
they were struck. The rousing baselines of the music were accompanied by 
bright flashes of light around the stage that provided an excellent performance, 
interweaving sight and sound. During these light-filled, energetic numbers, the 
audience was encouraged to stand up and clap, or wave their fists to the percus- 
sions on stage. 

Along with original songs by the group, they also covered some vintage rock 
songs. However, the blue man group added their own special flare to the old 
standards, giving new life to old tunes like Devo's "Wip It" and The Who's 
"Baba O'Reilly."

Although football is traditionally the central element of a 
school's Homecoming festivities, even a lack-luster season could 
not prevent Illinois Alums from coming home for one intense 
October weekend. While the game itself was a highlight for 
many fans, a week full of activities kept the school spirit flowing. 

"The game itself is really the biggest event," said Dena 
Bagger, associate director of student programs for the Alumni 
Association. "The individual colleges spend a lot of time within 
their individual units organizing pre- and post-game celebrations. 
Some sororities and fraternities do the same thing. There are so 
many things going on, so many events other than the parade and 
the football game." 

Food was a central aspect of many alumni events sponsored 
by various departments. Among other gatherings, Applied Life 
Studies hosted a pre-game continental breakfast, Natural 
Resources and Environmental Sciences had a pork chop and 
chicken luncheon, and the Institute of Aviation had a tailgate 
party attended by over 80 alumni and their families. 

One of the best-attended highlights of the week was the 

Morris Virgil tries to break a 
tackle during the home- 

coming game against the 
Minnesota Golden Gophers 




Enthusiastic fans came 
together to support the 
Fighting lllini. 

parade and pep rally on the Quad, which brought out 
current students, faculty, staff, alumni and community 
members. The parade included sorority and fraternity 
floats, a variety of registered student organizations, cur- 
rent and former members of the Marching lllini, and 
Feature Twirler Mandy Patrick. 

"I think it feels a little bit different," Patrick said of 
the Homecoming atmosphere. "No matter how bad the 
football team's doing, you'll always come back for 
Homecoming. Seeing people who graduated 30, 40, or 
50 years ago was definitely cool." 

At the pep assembly, Patrick performed using fire 
batons, something she does not normally get to do. 

"For me, fire batons are not something I do on a regu- 
lar basis since with football you're on Astroturf and you 
can't really do that kind of thing," Patrick said. "It's hard 
to twirl at night, even when your batons are lit up." 

The game against Minnesota was not to be overshad- 
owed, and despite a 36-10 lllini loss, it was still the cen- 
tral event of the weekend. 

"Even though we lost, it was nice to see your friends 
who graduated coming back," said Gina Davito, senior in 
jALS. "There's still a feeling of Illinois loyalty and sup- 

At halftime of the football game, the Marching lllini 
and the alumni band performed together, having had 
only around an hour of group rehearsal. 

"I think a lot of it — Oskee Wow Wow, the traditional 
music — comes back easily," Patrick said. "Marching is 
probably a little more difficult. You look at some of the 
people — some of these guys are 70 years old — and they're 
so cute with their big instruments. You almost don't 
think they're going to make it out there." 

Bagger said getting as many people involved in the 
festivities is key to a successful Homecoming. 

"We see Homecoming as not just alumni, but stu- 
dents, faculty and community members," she said. "I 
guess you could say it's for future alumni too." 

Patrick said the atmosphere perfectly captured what 
Homecoming stands for. 

"I think a lot of work goes in with the Alumni, mak- 
ing them feel like they're still a part of that lllini tradi- 
tion," Patrick said. "You want to make them feel wel- 
come, like they belong. People always want to come

Whether it was kicking, throwing, or fighting 
for a ball, intramurals were filled with com- 

Intramural Intensity 

A I ihtiP rr*§ PinnHi rnnn n&ri rmn / 


Little friendly competition: 

Pre-game rituals, superstitions, practices, special lineups; sounds like typical behav- 
ior for Big Ten athletes or sports professionals. It's also typical behavior for intramural 
sports team members. Even though intramural sports are a leisure activity, it does not 
mean that it's all just fun and games. Players on intramural sports teams can be really 
intense and pretty serious about their games. Each team wants the championship title 
of their league. 

Flag football, the most popular of the intramural sports, had seven leagues and about 
220 teams this season. Soccer had five leagues and about 35 teams, while softball had 
four leagues and about 56 teams. Each league was then broken into pools of five. The 
top two teams in each pool advanced to the playoffs. All teams were ranked and put 
into brackets. Postseason was sudden death. 

Though all teams were competitive, according to Campus Recreation Employees, 
the men's leagues were the most serious. Dustin Battas, senior in education, played flag 
football in the Men's A league with the West Canaan Coyotes. Though he and his 
team did not practice, they were still very competitive. 

"We love beating fraternity guys because they take it [the games] so seriously," 
Battas said. 

Even though he feels his team is more laid back than fraternity teams, the West 
Canaan Coyotes wanted to win. 

"Once the whistle blows, we're trying to win no matter what," he said. 


LAS freshman Jack Conroy played soccer with the Newman Knights in the Men's A 

"It's intense as all hell," Conroy said " You can find some really unbelievable teams." 
Newman Knights did not make the playoffs, but Conroy is already looking to next 
year. He hopes to hold practices next year and beat a few more teams. 

Some teams forgo practices and competitive attitudes for superstition. LAS junior 
John Lee played on a Co-Rec flag football team, the Runstoppers. Once the team made 
it into the playoffs, Lee wore the same outfit every night. He refused to wash it. He 
also went to Chevy's for dinner almost every night during playoffs week and ordered the 
same meal every time. 

"My roommate and I went to Chevy's for dinner Tuesday night and we won. So I 
went the next three nights in a row," Lee said. 

Other teams just dedicate as much of their free time as possible to playing intramu- 
rals. Members of the Co-Rec softball team, The Dream Team, play softball year-round 
in various intramural leagues. Most team members played so often, they were only able 
to hold one practice during the season. Their secret was in the lineup. 

"I had one batting order that worked really well, so I never went away from it," said 
Chemical Engineering graduate student Jason Ganley. 

While winning was important to The Dream Team, winning a championship t-shirt 
was even more important. The Campus Recreation Department changes the champi- 
onship t-shirts every year, and The Dream Team have made it their goal to get one 
every year. 

Win or lose, they love the competitive spirit of the games. 

"It's [softball] a team effort that's repetitive. There's one-on-one competition 
between batter and pitcher. So everyone gets to shine individually and yet still have to 
work together as a team," Ganley said.

Dress to Impress 





College students are always looking for an excuse to party. Why is Thursday such a 
hig night? Why, it's almost Friday, it's only logical to go out and drink. Almost every- 
body drinks on Unofficial St. Patrick's Day; it doesn't matter whether or not you're 
Irish. So it's only logical that everyone on campus gets excited for Halloween. No mat- 
ter if you went on a road trip, hosted a party or hit the bars, it was sure to be an unusual 

Chase McCoy, sophomore in LAS, and his roommates decided to host a party at 
their apartment for Halloween. Over 200 people attended their part, Mc coy said. 

"It was Halloween and a party needs to be thrown. We like to be the people that 
provide the party and the booze," he said. 

McCoy, who was dressed as Tom Cruise from "Risky Business", said it was a really 
fun night and everyone was in a good mood. He was just happy to host a party with a 
friendly atmosphere were everyone had fun. 

Mike Prosen, senior in LAS, and Jake Johnston, sophomore in LAS, decided to take 
a road trip for Halloween weekend. Prosen and Johnston drove to the University of 
Iowa to visit Prosen's sister. The two friends also met about 50 other guys from their 
fraternity in Iowa. 

"It was just a good atmosphere. Everyone was just happy to be there," Prosen said. 

Prosen and Johnston said the University of Iowa was a much wilder school than 
Illinois. Long lines were the standard at almost every bar and cover was $20 at most. 

Three friends are all set for Halloween night sporting the Elvis look. 

These five ladies get ready to kick off the night with a more sophisticated look 

Prosen ended up at a bar called Sports Column because they were only charging $10. 
He liked the Iowa bars because there was a better girl to guy ratio than most bars at 
Illinois. He also liked the costumes he saw while out, especially the girls dressed in lin- 

"It was way better at Iowa. The whole campus gets involved. There was absolutely 
every costume you could imagine there," Prosen said. 

Brian Sheehan, junior in engineering, worked at Clybourne's on Halloween. 
Sheehan said it wasn't a very crazy night because so many people went out of town for 
the holiday weekend. Still, Clybourne's had a costume contest and Budweiser give- 

Even though Sheehan had to work, he still had a good night. He and all his 
coworkers dressed up for work. He shaved his head, put a fake tattoo on his arm, and 
went as Vin Diesel. 

Sheehaan's most memorable part of the night came when the San Diego Chargers 
came to the bar. The team was visiting Champaign and came to Clybourne's. Sheehan 
got the chance to speak with a few of the team members, which made his night. 

Jessica Klein, freshman in LAS, attended the party at the PIKE fraternity house. 
Klein went out with 10 girls from her dormitory and said everyone enjoyed the PIKE's 

"I thought it was a really good time. The whole house was decorated. It was really 
cool," Klein said.

The tradition of Chief Illiniwek is a long and distinguished one in 
Illinois and Marching Illini history. It all began on a bright and sunny 
Saturday afternoon on October 30, 1926, at a football game against the 
University of Pennsylvania. Needless to say, the performance was a 
huge success. 

Prior to the game, Raymond Dvorak (Marching Illini director at the 
time) selected a student by the name of Lester Leutwiler to portray 
Chief Illinwek. The reason Lester was chosen was due to the fact that 
he had studied Indian dance, lore, and leather and bead work in the 
Boy Scouts. On his own, Lester handcrafted the outfit for the dance 
and created the first dance for Chief Illiniwek. 

Joining Lester in the first dance was a University of Illinois drum 
major, who was dressed up as the University of Pennsylvania Quaker. 
During the performance, both came out on the field together. After 
they each puffed on a peace pipe briefly, Lester performed the dance for 
the first time. After the dance, Chief Illiniwek and the Penn Quaker 
walked off the field arm in arm. 

The second student to portray Chief Illiniwek, Webber Borchers, 
was the first student to wear an authentic American Indian handcrafted 
outfit. He traveled to a reservation in South Dakota, and stayed there 
for a few months after scraping up some funds from a local business near 
campus. An elderly American Indian woman and her young apprentice 
actually made the outfit. Webber wore the outfit on the train on his 
was to the Illinois- Army game, where he got mistaken for the real 

Since Lester Leutwiler, there have been a total of 30 students to por- 
tray Chief Illiniwek, which included one female. In 1943, Idelle Stith- 
Brooks portrayed Princess Illiniwek for the season. The season was in 
the middle of the second World War, when most able-bodied males 
were in the U.S. Armed Forces. 

The actual outfit worn by the student who portrays Chief Illiniwek 
today is hand-crafted Sioux work. In 1983 it was purchased from Sioux 
Chief Frank Fools Crow, of the Ogalala-Lakota Sioux from the Pine 
ridge reservation in South Dakota. The outfit included a shirt, leggings, 
moccasins and gloves. Chief Fools Crow traveled to the University and 
presented the outfit during the half-time of a football game that year. It 
was said that he was extremely happy to present the outfit to the 
University so that his craftsmanship would be seen by so many people. 

The head-dress worn today has bead work around a band in the 
front and on two beaded, circular plates on the sides. The train is lined 
with about 70 dyed turkey feathers which are white, red and black. 

Dancing done by the student who portrays Chief Illiniwek is a type 
of Sioux dance called fancy dancing. The dance is entirely a celebrato- 
ry dance and has no religious, war-time or ceremonial significance. A 
few of the moves have been slightly exaggerated, so that they can be 
seen from all over Memorial Stadium.

For 75 years, the Chief has been the 
symbol of the spirit of a great university 
and of our intercollegiate athletic teams, 
and as such is loved by the people of 
Illinois. The University considers the 
symbol to be dignified and has treated it 
with respect. His ceremonial dance is 
performed with grace and beauty. 

Chief Illiniwek embodies the attributes 
valued by alumni, students, and friends of 
the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign. The tradition of the Chief is 
a link to our great past, a tangible symbol 
of an intangible spirit, filled with 

qualities to which a person of any back- 
ground can aspire: goodness, strength, 
bravery, truthfulness, courage, and 

The Chief Illiniwek tradition can be 
transformed into an educational asset, to 
both the University and to the Native 
American community. Elevating the 
symbol of Chief Illiniwek provides an 
opportunity for the University to promote 
the attributes that have come to be 
identified with this tradition.

Krannert Center for the Performing Arts played 
host to a wine tasting for charity Nov. 3. 

Hundreds of people came to the main lobby of the 
center to taste wines from Australia, France, 
Argentina and Spain. Thirty-five stations offered 
samples of 179 different vintages of wine with a table 
in the middle of the room with various varieties of 
bread to cleanse the palette. 

The 13 th annual wine tasting, hosted by Piccadilly 
Stores, attracted many kinds of people, from the seri- 
ous connoisseurs to poor college students looking for 
a cheap change from the bars. Professors took it as 
an opportunity to test their wine tasting skills and 
hob-knob with other members of the faculty and 

"I'm by no means a wine connoisseur," said Mike 
Beintum, engineering graduate student. "I came for 
$5 all-you-can-drink wine." 

Others used the opportunity to pick out wines to 
give as Christmas gifts for family and friends. Special 
discounts were offered on orders placed that night. 

The best part of the event was that all entrance 
fees collected went to charity. This year's $6,000 
donation went to CASA-Court Appointed Special 
Advocates for abused and neglected children. 

"The owner [of Piccadilly stores] has always made 
it clear children receive the proceeds," said Paul 
Simpson of Piccadilly Stores. "That's the huge shot i 
the arm for some of these organizations."

A little more than a year after he played Foellinger 
Auditorium, John Mayer was on to bigger and better 
things at Assembly Hall. The musician was welcomed 
back to campus by a full house the night of Nov. 7, play- 
ing songs from his sophomore album, Heavier Things, 
and also breaking out material from his 2001 debut CD, 
Room For Squares. 

"In some ways the stakes get higher when you make a 
second major-label record and everyone's looking," 
Mayer said. "In some ways, absolutely nothing is differ- 
ent because your voice still sounds the same and your 
hands feel the same on the guitar." 

The guitarist and composer, known for going off on 
blues-riff tangents at his concerts, visited campus as part 
of a two-year long stint of touring. His first album went 
triple platinum in 2003 after a lackluster debut, which 
failed to crack the top 200 on the billboard chart. 
Largely through massive, non-stop touring efforts and 
word of mouth, the country discovered Mayer's insightful 
lyrics and blues-inspired melodies. 

"Although I like his music, I hate him as a human 
being because he gets women," said Jeff Parker, senior in 

Mayer came off a strenuous concert schedule to record 
his second album, but all the touring seemed to pay off. 

"I came off the road after two years straight and knew 
exactly what kind of record I wanted to make — it wasn't 
an accident," Mayer said. 

Heavier things, the product of all that thought and 
long nights on the road, went to number one on the 
Billboard chart, ending Hillary Duff's six-week stay at 
the top. 

Despite his numerous sold-out shows and television 
appearances, Mayer remains grounded in the things that 
got him to the top in the first place, his inspiration for 
many of his lyrics... his family, friends, and his never- 
ending search for Mrs. Right. 

"At the end of the day, you're just a guy with a guitar 
putting in a Thai food order at 9 p.m.," he said.

Illini Union Board 

...three times the inn 

The Illini Union Board put on three shows during the 2003 fall season. The 
first show, Nov. 8, was Entre el Fuego y el Hielo. This Latina/o Fashion show 
compared the differences between men and women with the difference between 
fire and ice. 

The fashion show incorporated many types of clothes, from sleepwear to busi- 
ness wear, but broke away from catwalk norms by actually becoming a dance 
show. Tryouts, according to fashion model Nancy Menjivar, included a question 
and answer portion, as well as participants walking and dancing. Judges wanted 
to "see personality," said Menjivar. 

Paul Morgan and Rachel "RAqO" Roman, who ran the show, put in many 
hours to make the it work. The week before (Continued on page 110)

"crunch time," was time to get serious. In the beginning, 
practices ranged from 6-10:30 every Sunday to Wednesday 

"It's like having a baby," said Roman, and Morgan 
quipped, "without the financial responsibilities." 

The three and a half hour show incorporated many 
different scenes, including a Latina/o Greek Scene, a 
Matrix scene, and a Grand Finale Club scene, which 
models choreographed themselves. Morgan made a 

"I would like to have the ABC Rooms like a frat 
party... the show's going to be hot," he said. "I guarantee. 
If it's not, I'll pay [the audience] back $4." 

Roman and Morgan mentioned the show included 
calm and casual, hot and sexy, and style and class. "There 
is always something to be looking at," Roman said. 

It should have been a happy weddding day for the 
couple in the Murder Mystery Theater Till Death Do Us 
Part, but the lives of two people were dramatically 
changed after guests are murdered. 

Till Death Do Us Part ran on two nights, November 
12 and 13, in the Illini Union Ballroom. Unlike most 
shows, the murder mystery was interactive. Members in 
the show acted like they were celebrating the wedding of 
Jewel Hoggett, a lower-class vegetarian from Urbana, and 
Roger Windsor, a snooty upper-class "limp noodle" from 
further away. The audience enjoyed a dinner with the 
entire crew, or "wedding party," pretending to await the 
ceremony. The crew included the bride's father and his 
best friend, the bride's uninvited aunt, the best man, the 
best girlfriend of the groom, a French stripper, and the 
director, or "wedding planner." 

During the play, the audience members snooped 
through belongings, questioned the crew, and even gave a 
little attitude. The wedding never occurs because two 
people, the aunt and the best man, die in the ballroom. 
A series of traumatic events lead up to the cancellation, 
including Gert, the aunt, who brought shady news to the 
group, and Gregg, the best man, and Abigail, the mother 
of the groom, admitted to an affair. Henry and Jewel are 
forced to call off the wedding and Henry becomes engaged 
to Muffy, his best girlfriend. A vendetta and blackmail

list also shed light on the shady character's lives, giving 
motives to all the guests to commit murder. 

Each character interacted with many or all of the 
guests during the play to either dispel the possibility of 
committing the murders or become more suspicious. This 
was especially difficult because no audience interaction 
was possible during the run-throughs. No script existed 
because of the nature of the show. 

The culprit turned out to be the wedding planner. 

"I haven't planned that many weddings," she said, as 
she admitted to the murders. 

The cast of Once Upon a Mattress, the IUB spring 
musical, had to have been cold blooded. The cast and 
crew members advertised the show on the quad for twelve 
hours on a very cold Thursday. Stephanie Sheridan, stage 
manager, sat on a hard board meant to look like mattress- 
es for twelve hours. The cast and crew rehearsed every 
Sunday through Thursday from 6-10. 

The plot was based on The Princess and the Pea. No 
one in the castle can marry until pansy Prince Dauntless 
gets married himself. Lady Larkin begs Sir Harry to find 
himself a wife, and he brings back Princess Winnifred, 
who must pass a test of sensitivity, much like in the classic 
children's story. Winnifred and Dauntless fall in love at 
first sight. Dauntless's father, King Sextimus, the jester, 
and the minstrel find out the test and rig it, and 
Winnifred and Dauntless marry. Everyone in the court 
lives happily ever after.

Students get involved in the community 
by putting the 

Arts In 


At 9:30 on a Sunday morning, when most college students 
had yet to extract themselves from between the bed sheets, a 
group of undergraduates from across the country was already up 
and involved in animated discussion. Interspersed with a 
representation of faculty members, the students met in the Illini 
Union to discuss what, at first, appeared to be their vast 
difference, but turned out to be a common concern. 

As part of the Imagining America conference, 152 university 
faculty members and students met at U of I to discuss the 
connection — or lack thereof — between artists and scholars on 
college campuses and the members of the surrounding 

"Imagining the Arts is a national consortium of universities," 
said Steven E. Schomberg, vice chancellor for public engage- 
ment and institutional relations for the University. "Its purpose 
is coming together to engage students in the arts and 
humanities to organize to work at the integration of community 
and university." 

Traditionally a faculty-based organization, Imagining America 
recently teamed up with National Campus Compact, a coalition 
of undergraduate students with similar goals of bridging the gap 
between campus and community, to link the work of professors 
and students. The result, termed Arts in Action, was born of 
the desire to find the missing link. 

"Arts in Action is a combination of both those groups to get 
the undergrads in Campus Compact working with the faculty in 
Imagining America," Emily Garr, organizer for Arts in Action, 
said. "The goal of this conference is to develop that network a 
little further." 

This yearmarked the first year undergraduates participated in 
he conference, held Nov. 8-10. According to Garr, their 

presence has been a worthwhile addition to the annual event. 

"What's cool about the students here is they each have 
different interests, but one common goal to be involved in their 
communities through art," she said. "Everyone is taking back 
different things." 

While Arts in Action is a relatively young organization, 
Lauren Klein, University of Michigan sophomore, said its ideas 
were ready to be discused. 

"To me, art is really an expression of the mind," Klein said. 
"A lot of art has a message, so why can't that message have a 
social connection? I always thought of combining social 
awareness and art as important, but so new an idea. I never 
realized there was this kind of thing out there." 

The program is based out of the University of Michigan, but 
Schomberg thinks that U of I has much to gain from hosting 
the 2003 conference. 

"One of the things we know is that students here do not, in

commemorate the conference.

Wright and Green streets in Campustown. 

large scale at least, available themselves of Spurlock, Krannert, 
or places like that. All these things are needed in terms of a 
liberal arts education." 

Garr hopes students will be able to incorporate what they 
learned at the conference in their own individual programs. 

"The training here is based on strategy," Garr said. "The 
campuses are all so decentralized that students are working in 
all different areas on their off time, doing their own thing. 
Here we're trying to assess what students want and need, and to 
get more students involved."

pL22 Illini 

fyfiettfitue to tkn party 


The 22 Illini, the traditional late night bus, has driven 
thousands of students home every night of the week since 
1989. The buses stop running at 5 a.m, except Sunday. 
The route runs to north Springfield Avenue, Orchard 
Downs, the six-pack, and FAR/PAR. 

Dave Hishong is a driver for the 22 Illini. He has driven 
buses for two and a half-years. He sleeps during the day 
when he drives the 22 late at night. When asked what 
was a successful night, he commented, "Any night that no 
one pukes on the bus is a success." 

The 22 often used for a safe ride, but it is also a haven 
for the inebriated. During the late night shift, extra buses 
are always on-call. According to Hishong, one night on 
Labor Day weekend, a bus driver went through three 
different buses. 

A wide range of riders use the 22 Illini every night. Late 
nights on the weekends include everything from couples 
to singles looking for the last minute hookup, and women 
avoiding the last minute hookup. Essentially, the 22 has 
become part of culture. Everyone has a story involving a 
trip on the Illini. 

Also part of Illini Bus legend is the bus driver who greets 

new passengers with, "Welcome to my party!" 

"He is a real hero," said Katie Marshall, senior in LAS. 

Marshall said nothing was more dreadful than walking, 
and she felt safe. The 22 was the only good way to arrive 
at her destination. 

Christina Huck, a sophomore, and her boyfriend, Jeremy 
Tongate, met at Staples. Tongate was visiting Huck and 
both rode the 22 back to the six-pack. Huck said the 
weirdest event on the 22 was when she fell asleep and 
rode the bus around for an hour and a half. 

Candice Sloan just finished partying at Tonic before 
boarding the 22. She said she thought the bus drivers ran- 
domly click the button when riders bard the bus, but that 
the drivers were always very helpful to boarders. She also 
said the bus helped those living in FAR get home when 
they were too drunk to walk home. 

Hishong ended his route, so everyone had to switch 
buses. Soon after, the bus driving would end and safe bus 
drivers like Hishong could sleep without the stress of deal- 
ing with those who need a safe haven away from the

A day In the life... 


Bottom: Caroline Manley 

hangs out with some of her 

residents in the floor lounge. 

Near Right: Manley reads a 

sign posted in Forbes Hall. 

Far Right: Manley keeps a 

friendly rapport with her 


It's 10 a.m., and sophomore Caroline Manley is in 
the midst of heated one-on-one combat. 

Acknowledging her obnoxiously loud opponent, 
Manley swings her arm at it, knocking the wind out of it 
for the time being. Although she knows she is doomed 
to ultimately lose the war, she rolls over and basks in the 
glory of winning the battle; the snooze is set and she has 
a few more minutes to sleep. 

Today is Wednesday, Feb. 24, one of Manley 's 
favorite days of the week. 

"Wednesdays are a good day," she said. "Wednesdays 
I don't start class until noon, but I try to get up by ten 
because if I get up too late, I just feel lazy." 

It's a day when her sleep pattern is easily thrown off. 
While she gets a few extra hours of rest in the morning, 

every other Wednesday night is duty night for Manley, a 
resident assistant in Forbes Hall. 

"Duty night is technically 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.," Manley 
said. "You can do whatever you want when you're on 
duty, you just have to stay in the building and either 
have your radio on or let them know you're in your 
room, in case they need to call you if something 

Being an RA is often demanding, but Manley said it 
is not as tough as she expected. 

"Training is just two weeks before the start of 
school," she said. "I was scared, because it's how to deal 
with a suicide, how to deal with alcohol poisoning, how 
to deal with sexual assault. It's just thing after thing 
where they're giving you these skills, but it's like, 'how 
do you deal with these things?' I remember the first time 
someone came to me with an emergency, I was like, 'Oh 
my God,' but now I've got it down." 

As an RA, Manley gets a chance to practice some of 
the skills she will likely need after she graduates with a 
degree in social work. 

"I'm a sociology major with a minor in African- 
American studies with hopes of going into social work," 
Manley said. "I guess I'm a very people-type of person. I 
love the dorms. I loved living in the dorms last year. If 
somebody goes in and they don't enjoy their experience, 
they're not going to be a good RA. It's interacting with 
people, and you get to do so many different things. You 
get to learn how to create a community." 

Manley 's people skills and passion for building a bet- 
ter world have led her to involvement in other activi- 
ties, including Alternative Spring Break, Best Buddies, 
and Volunteer Illini Projects. 

"I'm the vice-chair for VIP," Manley said. "VIP has 


15 different projects within it and they are each focused 
on a specific need within the community, so there's a 
director for each of those projects, and my role is to over- 
see each of those directors." 

All of her activities and leadership roles, as well as 
taking a class schedule that included 17 hours a semester, 
have helped Manley learn to be flexible when working 
with her residents. 

"It's being available a lot," Manley said. "You have be 
sure that you have your door open, and just creating that 
feeling that you're just here, while at the same time not 
being overbearing. There is that line between being 
friends with your residents and being detached. I like 
where I'm at with mine, we can chill and stuff, but they 
have their lives and I have mine and that's ok." 

She said there is camaraderie among the RAs she did 
not anticipate. 

"This isn't something I expected, but now that I'm in 
it, the staff is great," Manley said. "We have ten RAs 
here in Forbes and I love them. So it's kind of provided 
me all these friendships I was hoping for, but not expect- 
ing by any means." 

Between the friendships, the fun and the things she's 
learned, Manley has found many things about being an 
RA that appeal to her. 

"I love the dorms because I can open my door and 
there are five hundred people right here in this building," 
Manley said. "It's a great procrastination method. It's just 
fun, it's a great way to meet people, there's always some- 
thing going on, you're never bored. I'll be back next

The mini finish a 

winning season with a tropical tournament 


Anyone who arrived late to the Nov. 15 
volleyball match against University of 
Wisconsin did not miss much, assuming 
they were in time for the third game of the 
night. While games one and two, both 
won by Illinois, were exciting displays of 
what the two teams were capable of, the 
real show of the night came in the 
nail-biter third round when the 
well-matched opponents fought bitterly 
into extra points, with the Illini eventually 
emerging victorious. 

Game three started out with a sense of 
deja vu as the Badgers led the Illini for a 
long stretch, just as they had in game two, 
finally letting their advantage slide until 
the score was tied at 17-17. From there, 
the lead bounced back and forth more than 
the ball did, with each team calling match- 
point twice before the Illini pulled the 
game out from under Wisconsin's feet on 
their third attempt, snatching up the 

match on a serve by senior outside hitter 
Melissa Vandrey and walking away with a 
34-32 win and the "W" for the night. 

"I think we're a lot more confident now," 
junior setter Erin Virtue said of the second- 
time-around victory over Wisconsin. "The 
first time we played them we weren't very 
confident at all." 

It was a typically magical performance for 
the Illini, who were 21-5 overall and 12-4 
in the Big Ten at that point in the season. 
What made wins like this over the No. 23 
Badgers, and earlier victories against tough 
conference rivals Penn State, Minnesota, 
and Ohio State, so impressive was the less 
than stellar expectations for the team when 
the season began. 

"We were picked to finish ninth [in the 
Big Ten] by the Coaches Association at the 
beginning of the season," Head Coach Don 
Hardin said. "There's been a very spirited, 
competitive effort all year by this team. It's

about earning respect." 

On a squad where freshmen outnumber 
seniors almost two-to-one, it made sense 
that the team was not favored to do well. 
However, they vowed to prove the 
naysayers wrong, working through a tough 
preseason schedule to show what they were 
made of. 

"We got down here the first week in 
August," Virtue said. "That was when we 
first incorporated the freshmen. We had 
two or three practices a day; it was pretty 

They were very competitive because 
everybody was fighting for spots at that 
time; we still had to solidify our lineup." 

Competition may have been just what the 
players needed, and could be credited as 
the unexpected factor in the team's success. 
According to senior middle blocker Lisa 
Argabright, it is what set this group apart 
from past seasons. 

"This team is unique because everybody is 
so competitive," Argabright said. "They all 
want it every single day. We wanted to be 
at the top and were willing to give the 
effort needed to get there." 

All the effort was obvious early on, as 
Illinois went 10-1 in the preseason. While 
it was a tough schedule including a long 
road trip to Storrs, Conn., Virtue said it 
had big payoffs in the long run. 

"Those matches are really key for the 
NCAA tournament," Virtue said, "but 
they're also important for getting us 
prepared for the Big Ten." 

A reciprocal situation, according to 
Hardin, who said the Big Ten is very 
important in preparing the squad for 
post-season action. 
"The Big Ten is such a challenging 

conference for volleyball," Hardin said. 
"Many of the teams are nationally ranked. 
It becomes difficult to get into the NCAA 
tournament, but if you get in you're very 
well prepared for the upper-level competi- 
tion and adjustments you'll have to make." 

The Cinderella story, with the team's 
magical come-from-behind victories or 
long climb to the top of the conference, 
does not mean the team breezed through 
the season. While they have enjoyed all 
the success, the players know it is no fairy 

"Our slogan for the year has been 'the 
sword is mightier than the shield'," Hardin 
said. "We know we have to keep using the 
sword. We have to keep being aggressive, 
going after things we want."

an evening with 

Black Chorum 

Bottom, Right: Black Chorus performs under the direction of Dr. Ollie Watts Davis. They 
perform actively throughout the year. 


The heavenly voices filtering through the doors of Smith 
recital Hall Nov. 16 belonged to the University's black cho- 

The chorus was founded in 1968, and for the past 22 years, 
Dr. Ollie Watts Davis has conducted the choir under the 
guise of Music 261C. In concert dress or choir robes, they 
perform formally and informally every year, singing the music 
of black Americans ranging from Negro spirituals to gospel 
to rhythm and blues. 

"The performance is strictly for the audience," said Dr. 
Watts Davis. "My favorite part is the practicing. I enjoy the 
historical significance and the meanings of the songs." 

The choir has its own musicians, and has performed at the 
Orchestra Hall concert in Chicago. They have also 

participated in the National Black Gospel College Choir 
Workshop, and for concerts at Perdue, Northwestern and 
Eastern Illinois University. 

The choir, who ranges from 90- 150 members, is constantly 
in demand to perform throughout the city and the country. 
They have hosted the Black Sacred Music Symposium on 
the Champaign-Urbana campus and have presented 
prominent artists including Bobby Jones, the Winans and 
Gary Hines. 

"I have the wonderful opportunity to work with some out- 
standing students." Watts Davis said. "As long as I feel I can 
make a significant contribution, I'll keep doing it."

Bottom: Sororities practice for three weeks to perfect 
elaborate dance routines. 

Right: Fraternities often do skits or songs instead of dances. 

Serenades are a well-known tradition in Greek life across the 
country. Katie Barber of the Pan-Hellic Council, the head 
governing organization, wrote: 

"Serenades are what Greek social organizations use to determine 
their social pairings. The format is up to individual chapters, but 
most chapters use either a skit or a dance. Some send around 
members to play guitar and sing. Chapters send their serenade to 
the chapters they want to have social functions with, as well as 
some chapter they had functions with the previous semester who 
they want to thank. Serenades start at nine p.m. and they are 
allowed to continue no later than one a.m." 

Each serenade is meant to express the sorority or fraternity's 
personality. Every year, the men serenade the women and vice 

"It's a very romantic thing; they bring flowers or food. It's like 
asking someone on a date," said one sorority member. 

Dan Bureau, Assistant Dean of Students and Coordinator of 
Greek Affairs, compared the events to a man singing to a woman 
from a balcony. 

Compared to other universities, Bureau said the University's 
serenades are more elaborate. The serenading system is a 
cooperation between the 54 houses on campus. To avoid con- 
flicts, the houses must coordinate with each other, which fosters a 
sense of togetherness. 

The PHC oversees the event and the process went under a 
small examination this year. Bureau said a lot of time and energy 
goes into enforcing standards, so a few people don't go too far. 

"There's a delicate balance," he said. 

Rules were established because the PHC does not want one 
house to spoil the image for everyone. 

"I was incredibly pleased with the serenades this season and I 
think things are only going to get better," said Barber.

Realit y 

Junior Megan Utzinger is one of 

the many students who tunes in 

for reality television. This 

evening she was one of many 

who showed up to watch Trista 

& Ryan's Wedding.

As Autumn Griffin, senior in LAS, walked down the 
hallway in her dorm one night in the spring of 2003, she 
could not help hut hear the stereo sound of FOX-TV's 
'American Idol" streaming out of doorways all around the 
floor. The scene of so many students gathering to watch 
the reality television show stayed with the resident 
advisor, and this winter she organized an event where 
people could gather to watch the show as a group. 

"I did this because last year I'd walk down my hallway 
and I could hear it coming out of every room; there'd be 
groups of girls all watching it," Griffin said. "The first day 
it was just me, one girl from Barton-Lundgren and one 
other RA, but the second day there were six girls, most of 
:hem from this floor. I think it's going to get more 

intense towards the end of the season." 

Reality programming certainly left a mark on the 
2003-2004 school year, as shows like "American Idol," 
"The Bachelor," and "Real World" attracted audiences 
and high ratings. In fact, from Sept. 22 through Feb. 1, 
Nielsen Media Research reported four of the top ten 
most-watched shows on television were reality programs. 
"I think unlike most other shows it lets you see regular 
people," said Tucker Maloney, casting coordinator for the 
Jamie Kennedy Experiment. "People like to watch to see 
how others react and think of what they would do in that 
same situation. Most people can't relate to every situa- 
tion they see on "Friends" or "Seinfeld," but they can 
relate to regular people. It's little doses of reality for 


Opposite page, bottom: (clockwise from left) senior Kathleen 
Maloney, sophomore Kendall Ericson, junior Kristen Lazzaretto, and 
junior Julie Farris enjoy the show. 

Bottom: Friends gather to knit and watch the heavily hyped "Trista 
and Ryan's Wedding" 

everybody to watch." 

As reality television has grown in popularity over the 
,ast few years, so has the variety of programming available, 
everything from hidden camera shows like "The Jamie 
Xennedy Experiment" and "Punk'd," to matchmaking 
;ompetitions like "The Bachelor" have sprung up on net- 
work and cable television. Not surprising, most shows are 
pot as real as they appear, Maloney said. 

"With reality TV shows like Jamie Kennedy, every 
person you see on air is a hired actor, so it's a completely 
r.ontrolled environment," Maloney said. "If we're doing a 
Kit in a restaurant, the entire restaurant would be shut 
[lown. You would never walk into a restaurant and look 
|>ver at a prank being played at the next table." 

Maloney said putting oneself in the contestants' shoes is 
often the motive for watching the shows. Archie 
Ramesh, freshman in LAS, agrees, saying she hopes of one 
day auditioning for "American Idol." 

"I want to try out if they come to Chicago," Ramesh 
said. "I did check up a couple of times. I'd try out for 
"Survivor" someday too." 

But the appeal of reality television is not always in 
imagining yourself in the contestants' positions. 

"I know I can't sing," Griffin said. "But I've watched all 
three seasons."

Averag e Dorm 



living on campus 






University housing offers several special pro- 
grams for students looking for specific living situa- 

Piper Hudson, a program coordinator, runs the 
Women in Math, Science and Engineering 
(WIMSE) program at the Florida Avenue Residence 
Halls. Hudson said the program is important to the 
University because it embraces women in field 
where they are underrepresented, and brings them 
together in a community with others that have the 
same interests they do. Women in these fields can 
often struggle with fitting into male-dominated 
majors, Hudson said. 

The name implies that only technical fields 
would make it into the program, but the statistics 
show this is false. The 135 students that populate 
WIMSE do come mostly from ACES, Engineering 
and LAS, but a few are from other colleges. Majors 
range from undecided to East Asian Language and 
Culture to materials science and engineering. 

"The program focuses a lot on helping students 
meet each other and find support for each other," 
Hudson said. 

The program also supports women in their job 
search; the Kimberly-Clark Corporation and other 
do recruiting on campus, and five WIMSE students 
each year have the opportunity to mirror Kimberly- 
Clark employees. Faculty members hold WIMSE 
dinners and teach WIMSE-specific courses on 

Students also have the option of living in Allen- 
Unit One. Howie Schein, unit director at Allen, 
described the residence hall as a strongly academic 
place. The 75 courses offered through the program 
are taught on-site. 

"You take course with the people you live with," 
Schein said. 

Unit One is given an operating budget, which 
they use to take students on field trips, out to dinner 
or to Krannert. In addition, 250 Allen residents 
take private music lessons, and two photography 
studios are open to those enrolled in a class or those 
who have instructor permission. 

Schein believes the community in Allen is 
stronger than any other residence hall on campus. 
He said 25 student groups have been formed 


through this program, and they range from political 
discussion to yoga. 

On top of these programs, Allen has an in-house 
resident that lives with students for six to eight 
weeks. Past residents have included a slam poet and 
a Brown vs. Board author. 

Sandeep Rao loves the great community he 
found at Allen. 

"You pay extra for it, but it's worth it," he said. 

He likes the 24-hour practice rooms, where he 
can play the piano after writing a long report. 

Jerrel Beckham, a desk clerk at Sherman Hall, 
has lived in the graduate dorm for two years and 
feels that his, like those at Allen, has a friendly 
environment. It houses up to 460 students, and 
while it is not necessary that all residents be gradu- 
ate students, an undergraduate must be at least 20 
and have junior standing. 

Steve Parsons, complex director for the graduate 
tails, explained some logistical differences between 
Sherman and undergraduate dorms on campus. 

Sherman, as well as other graduate dorms like 
Daniels, is a 24-hour quiet hall. It includes a small,

single room and a private or semi-private, 

Graduate programs tend to attract more out-of- 
state and out-of-country students. 

"It has a unique flavor and distinction," he said. 

Sherman also has a Social Action Team, which 
covers student government and programming for 
the hall. 

Students, both graduate and undergraduate, have 
options when it comes to living on campus, and 
each offers new opportunities and a fresh perspec-

Winter break. 

It's a time we all look forward too. Some students 
find themselves counting down the days soon after 
mid-terms. As college students, we are given a gener- 
ous amount of time to relax. University of Illinois 
students generally return home to see family and 
hang out with friends. 

However, others choose an alternative to the 
usual break, choosing to work instead of relax. A por- 
tion of them actually stay in Champaign to earn 
some extra money. By doing so, University of Illinois 
students find a way to 
get the most out of an entire month out of school. 

Working over Christmas break is an ideal 
opportunity for many University of Illinois students. 
The majority of those who stay on campus simply 
continue the jobs they have been working during fall 
semester. Other have to begin the job search early. 

Whether they plan to work back at home or in 
Champaign, they usually to begin searching by 
Thanksgiving. Students looking to work at home 
during the Christmas rush often use Thanksgiving 
break to fill out applications. 

There are many advantages to staying in 
Champaign to work. On-campus employers tend to 

be more flexible and willing to work around students' 

Ivanna Young, junior in Journalism, has been a 
long-term Dining Services Employees. She spent her 
break working the Intervarsity Christian 
Fellowship Conference. Young said that her bosses 
allowed her to go home for New Years. 

"Within hours of leaving work, I was in Chicago 
having a great time," Young said. 

T'chana Bradford, junior in Community Health 
and mall employee, said her experience working over 
break was "really positive." She was able to use the 
extra money to cover expenses like books, clothes, 
and groceries. Some of her friends stayed in 
Champaign as well, which made the experience 
much better. Bradford says she would definitely work 
over break again. 

Students who work in Chicago enjoy the opportu- 
nity to make a little extra money without a long 
term-commitment. Javari Thomas, senior in LAS 
found a way to make things work for him. He wanted 
to return home to Chicago but continue working. His 
employer, Walgreen's, allowed him to transfer to a 
location close to home over the break, and Thomas 
was able to get the best of both worlds. 

Opposite page: Students work at the 

lllini Union Information desk. 

This page: Students also work at the 

Union, serving customers at Delights 

and other restaurants. 

Unfortunately, working over the break is not 
always so easy. Since finals generally end just a few 
days before Christmas, this might pose a problem for 
potential employers. Young said that part of the rea- 
son she opted to work in Dining Services over break 
was because she "couldn't find a job anywhere" with 
her finals schedule. The weeks leading up to 
Christmas are the ones that generate the most 
business, and require more help. Also, off-campus 
employers are not as willing to work around students' 

Department stores need all the help they can get 
during the holiday rush and are hesitate to let 
employees go home. Bradford, says that her employer, 
jFamous Barr, has a policy that prohibits employees 
pom taking days off or switching with other employ- 
ees over the holidays. 

Bradford said the main drawback for her was that 

she was unable to spend a great deal of time with 
friends and family back home. Bradley got lucky this 

"I was able to go home for the weeks of Christmas 
and New Years," she said. 

Young agreed she missed out on a lot of events 
with her friends back home as well. She said that she 
probably will not do it again next year. 

Christmas break offer students the opportunity to 
take advantage of their time off. Most of us can use 
some extra spending money every now and then.

Saturday School Art Exhibition 

inner worlds 


and Design 


It's 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning and most of campus town is fast 
asleep, recovering from a long week. The Art and Design Building, howev- 
er, is already buzzing with sounds of pencils sharpening, paper tearing, and 
children talking. It is almost time for the Saturday Art School to being, 
and eight-year-old Alex is sitting on a blue, flower-shaped carpet, finishing 
a project she started last week. 

"I like coming here because I like art and I love to draw," she said. 

Alex is only one of many children, ages K through high school, who 
take part in the weekly art lessons provided by the Saturday School. The 
children come from over 30 different communities in Champaign County, 
with some of them driving as long as one hour to get to the lessons every 
Saturday morning. The classes are instructed by art education majors at the 

"I knew that I wanted to be an art teacher since I was about eight years 
old, and I decided to take part in this program because I had some amazing 
art teachers growing up and I wanted to be for others what they were for 
me," said Nicole Schliep, sophomore in art education. 

The program was started in 1964 by Professor Schultz, then head of the 
Art Education Program, in order to provide student-teaching experience for 
students majoring in art education. 

"The program started because students would put in four years of their 
lives into art education, only to discover upon graduating that it was not 
the right career for them." said Sandy Bales, director of the program.

The Saturday School Program, or Art Education 206: Practicum in 
Teaching Art, is a mandatory part of the curriculum for art education stu- 
dents. The college requires students to take part in a semester of teaching 
Saturday School during their sophomore year, followed by a semester of 
Wednesday School, or student-teaching at a smaller public school that 
often lacks a permanent art program. 

"The program is based on the concept that the relationship of student 
to teacher should not be hierarchical, but rather one-leveled in order to 
allow everyone to learn from everyone else," Bales said. 

The art education students participate in creating the lesson plans 
along with the faculty supervisors in the spirit of this kind of learning. 

"The class is very beneficial to teaching in the future due to the rich 
resources which allow students to try out the curriculum techniques and 
lesson plans they design," said Jesse Wang, a first semester TA for the class. 

The collaborative nature of the Saturday program is also evident in the 
weekly schedule, which begins with a 25 minute "what's on your mind" 
session, during which the children express their thoughts and feelings in 
an artistic manner, all the while sharing their ideas with one another. 

This segment is then followed by the student-teacher's instruction of 
the weekly topic, which can range from issues of depth and perception to 
various art techniques like painting. 

Finally, the students are asked to incorporate the week's lesson into a 
new art project, while still interacting with one another and with the stu- 

"There is an amazing transformation that takes place each semester 
when the student-teachers begin to see themselves as teachers, because 
that's how the children see them," Bales said, summing up the benefits of 
the class. "It is always a big turning point and a major learning experience 
for the students."

Different Holiday 



When many get together to exchange gifts for the holidays, 
some often assume the celebration is in honor of Jesus. While 
this may be the case for the majority in the United States, stu- 
dents from out of the country contribute their own special 
ideas about the holidays and bring a new perspective to 
December. Many exchange gifts for reasons other than a deity. 
Dorms often have to deal with very diverse philosophies and 
interpretations of what holidays mean to the entire communi- 

At Armory House, a gift exchange with friends for 
Christmas meant more than the religious interpretation. A 
gift exchange that involved a few Christians, a Deist and a few 
agnostics would seem oxymoronic, given the religious context 
of the season. In reality and in surprise to many, Christmas 
means much more than Jesus. 

Cyndi Loza, who says she believes in a God but is not 
Christian, said Christmas, "means coming together with family 
and friends, and taking a break from finals." 

To many, gift exchanges and the holidays in America mean 
getting together with others during the holiday season. 

Todd Swiss, who is an agnostic and Tao, believes that 


everyone acknowledges Christmas, and while there is no true 
religious meaning for him, he gets to focus on family and 

Sabrina Kaiser, who believes in a higher power, says 
Christmas is a time to be with family and friends. 

"It's a time to show people you care about them," she said. 
"It's a time to be nicer, cheerful and a bit more unified." 

The spirit of Christmas also has a similar meaning for 
Katherine Ciecko, but this meaning is not religious. Ciecko is 
a member of the Bright Movement, a worldview that does not 
believe in any supernatural or mystical elements. Instead, they 
believe in ethics and actions that are consistent with a natural- 
istic outlook on existence. Christmas to her is a Christian hol- 
iday, but she chooses to take this time to celebrate nature and 
the season of winter. 

Ciecko 's roommate, Michelle Adekunle, celebrates the sea- 
son as a Baptist. 

"It's all about God," Adekunle said. 

Natthaporn Soonthornpong lives in Global Crossroads. He 
is a Buddhist from Thailand. Over the holidays, the Buddhist 
New Year and Buddha's birthday are celebrated. It is a time to 
reflect on what he should or should not be doing, 
Soonthornpong said. 

Hindus do not have a festival during the traditional 
American holiday break. Arvind Badrinarayanan, from Abu 
Dhabi, celebrates the Hindu holiday Navarathri, or nine 
nights. Diwali, or the festival of lights, is the ending of 
Navarathri, which takes place in October. Diwali includes a 
celebration with candles made from a clay vessel, oil and cot- 
ton. During Navarathri, every family has an open house and 
attends several open houses. In every house, there is a display 
of an odd number of steps with religious dolls. The holiday is 
intended to celebrate the triumph of good over evil, and takes 
place from the new moon day to the ninth day of Ashvin. It is 
the most celebrated time of the year. 

Gokhan Soydan is also a member of the Global Crossroads 
community. Soydan is a Muslim from Istanbul. The Muslim 
holy month of Ramadan ends with Eid, which this year was 
celebrated over Thanksgiving break. During the 30 days of 
Ramadan, Muslims must fast from sunup to sundown. Soydan 
says this is relatively easy in the winter, but difficult in the 
summer when the days are longer. Ramadan is a time to make 
Muslims understand the tribulations of the poor who may not 
have food, and to become aware of the world of pleasures. The 
holiday culminates with a feast. 

"Eid doesn't pass without Baklava," Soydan said. 

Soydan and Badrinarayanan both understand why the holi- 
day break falls where it does in America. They understand 
that most Americans do celebrate during the end of December. 

"It relates to the spirit of the country," Soydan said. 

In Turkey, where the population is over 99 percent Muslim, 
celebrations are different, and therefore it is expected that the 
United States follows different tradition. 

Even though he doesn't celebrate during the traditional 
time with the rest of the country, Badrinarayanan said 
Christmas at the Armory House simply means friends and fam- 


"At least I can make use of the Christmas sales," he said.

Bruce Weber 

Luther Head pounds down the court as the offensive point 
man in the most intense three-on-three match to be found on 
campus. Knees bent and hands spread wide, Dee Brown back 
peddles ahead of him, tracing Head's movements. 

"Come on Luth, feed it!" Coach Bruce Weber yells over 
the echoing squeak of rubber soles, and the thud that resonates 
every time Head pounds the ball against the pristine wood 

It is Tuesday Dec. 16. Closer to the quad, students are fran- 
tically cramming for the finals they know could make or break 
their grades, but the focus at the Ubben Basketball Facility is, 
as always, on the game. Today is just another day in the life of 
Mini men's basketball, and Head Coach Weber will be the first 
to tell you it's a hectic life to lead. 

"I think the higher the level you go, the more you become 
a representative of the University," Weber said. "From promo- 
tions to radio shows to TV shows to alumni functions, all that 
stuff takes a lot of your time." 

In his first year at the University, Weber has managed to 
juggle the pressures of a high-profile job at a Division I-A 
school, and what has proven a newsworthy year for the team. 
By starting his morning early, Weber tries to help out at home 
and relax a little before arriving on campus. 

"The alarm rings about 6:45," Weber said. "I have three 
daughters, so I try and lay there for a little bit, and they get 
going and get ready for school. So then I get up, and you 
make^ sure they get up, and get fed and then you help with the 
laundry, help with anything with the girls trying to get off to 
school. When they're all gone, I try to walk every morning. I 


take the dogs, a lot of times my wife comes; its one of the few 
times we have some free time or quality time together." 

Weber's workday is a long one, usually including inter- 
views, watching video of different teams and games, and corre- 
sponding with other coaches, all in addition to actually run- 
ning practice. Today he is also planning a recruiting trip, 
scheduled for Wednesday. 

"We have so many days during the season that we go eval- 
uate kids," Weber said. "This week because we have exams 
and we gave them a day off. I'll probably go three days; nor- 
mally maybe one day here or there. Tomorrow I'll at least see a 
couple kids, Saturday a couple kids. When we go out, we try to 
see at least two, whether a practice or a game. We stop at a 
school and visit a coach and a game, some sort of thing where 
we're being efficient with our time." 

Efficiency is key for Weber, whose days rarely end before 

"On a normal day, we usually end up practice about six, 
come back in the office, answer phone calls, mail, different 
things like that," he said. "Then you know it could be 7 or 

Once home, Weber helps his daughters with their school- 
work before turning his focus back to basketball. 

"I try to help my girls, if I'm home, with homework. I have 
a pretty good math background so I help with math a lot, my 
wife helps with English," he said. "Then they all go to bed 
and I try to walk the dogs again, not as long, maybe fifteen, 
twenty minutes. Then usually I get on the phone; it could be 
recruiting calls, it could be other coaches talking basketball, 

different things like that. Sometimes you're just sitting, you 
might watch tape, you know, you're talking 10:30, 11 o'clock 
at night. You watch some tapes, you might do some organiza- 
tion stuff, go through your mail that day or whatever you did- 
n't get the chance to do." 

But the end of the day is important, as it gives him a 
chance to unwind. 

"For me, the end of the day is the first time I get to relax a 
little bit," Weber said. "Sometimes I have a snack and I'll just 
watch sports center for a minute; I may watch an NBA game 
for ideas, or watch film or do notes or work and stuff." 

Despite all the stress and the frequently hectic schedule, 
Weber said working with young athletes is often the most 
rewarding part of his job. 

"I've been in it long enough now that a lot of the guys I 
helped recruit or coached have kids, some of them are 
teenagers," he said. "They invite us to be with them and they 
come to games and call, and all that, whether they're guys I 
was with at Purdue or Southern now, and then hopefully here. 
That's probably the most rewarding thing, when you see some- 
body have success, not only on the court but in life, in the 
classroom, getting a degree, seeing them mature through their 
four years. Having them come back later on, having a decent 
job, a family." 

But he's quick to add, "Along with when you win. 
Obviously that's rewarding."

Matchbox 20 proved they've still got the talent, 
visual appeal, and catchy hooks that won them legions 
of fans seven years ago, the band performed in front of a 
large crowd at Assembly Hall Dec. 8. 

In a night full of surprises, there was nothing unex- 
pected about the quality and tone of the band's perfor- 
mance. It was the official last show of the group's 42- 
city "More Than You Think You Are 2003" tour, and 
despite lead singer Rob Thomas declaring himself to be 
"under the weather" the show went off without a 
hitch — sort of. 

Everything came to a halt about midway through the 
performance when a video message from Triumph the 
Insult Comic Dog from MTV appeared after the closing 
bars of "Bent." Drafted as a prank from opening act 
Fountains of Wayne, the crude canine proceeded to 
chew apart both bands, calling the support band best 
known for "Stacey's Mom," the super song of the fall, 
"more like Mountains of Pain." 

"It's taken seven years of hard work to put out three 
albums?" Triumph prodded Matchbox 20 at one point in 
his spotlight-stealing monologue. "Maybe you guys 
should eat more bran and fruit." 

However, the rest of the night belonged to the band. 
The music was clearly the central element, with a sim- 
ple stage design and a visual show based on light work 
rather than complicated platforms and flashy equipment 
tricks. The group performed 20 songs in total, including 
10 from their 2002 release, but it was the songs from 
their debut album, 1996's "Yourself or Someone Like 
You," that drew the biggest reaction from the crowd. 

"I think they played enough old stuff," said Sarah 
Dow, sophomore in LAS. "I think it's a band's responsi- 
bility to promote the new music, and they did it very 
well. After hearing it in concert, I appreciate the new 
CD even more." 

One of the highlights of the night was a mellower- 
than-usual version of "If You're Gone," a single off the 
band's sophomore album "Mad Season." Trimmed down 
to just voice and an electric guitar, the slowed version 
caught the essence of the song, while eliminating much 
of the catchy made-for-radio gimmickry typical of con- 
temporary rock music. 

The band held the most familiar material for the 
end, performing three of five songs from the first album 
in the encore, including the band's super-hit first single 

A few minutes later, Thomas was again the one 
being pushed around, as a group of 14 Hooter's 
Restaurant waitresses emerged on stage behind him dur- 
ing the band's last song, "Hand in Your Pocket." 

"It was a really big rush," said Kara, one of the 
Hooter's employees who appeared on stage. "It was real- 
ly exciting." The practical joke was organized the day 
of the show, when members of Fountains of Wayne 

came into the restaurant, she said. 

The gag was a surprise finish to the end of the 
band's touring run — for a little while. Thomas, as well 
as other band members guitarists Kyle Cook and 
Adam Gaynor, drummer Paul Doucette and bassist 
Brian Yale, plan to take some time off after spending 
most of the new millennium on the road promoting 
two CDs. 

"I actually kind of think they need it," Dow said. 
"A lot of times, bands need a break so they can grow 
as individuals and come back with original material." 

Dow said she was thrilled with the performance. 

"I enjoyed the concert," she said. "I thought it was 
great. I just love them to death."

Pitting £)nt 

The Middleman 


The book huyback process signifies the end of a long semester. 
After spending hundreds of dollars on textbooks, U of I students 
finally have a chance to get some of their money back. The majori- 
ty head to the bookstore to trade texts for cash. However, students 
seeking the greatest possible payment for their books have begun 
looking elsewhere. 

Most University of Illinois students take the traditional route 
for book buybacks. They rush into the nearest campus bookstore 
and to find a spot in line. They anxiously wait to see how many of 
their books are worth selling and how much they'll get paid. Some 
are disappointed to find out their most expensive textbooks are not 
being accepted. This happens for a number of reasons, from a 
change in edition to highlighted pages. Additionally, students are 
paid only a portion of what the book store will eventually re-sell 
them for. 

Brian Paragi, Textbook Manager at TIS, said students are paid 
half of the original new price from the last semester. However, 
some complain they get significantly less. 

Marcus Troutman, Senior in Political Science, says there have 
been several times when he has been unsatisfied with the amount 
he was paid. He recalls times when some books were relinquished 
for only $ 1 . 

Osei Poku, Junior in LAS adds, "The bookstores cheat students 
out of their money." 

In the past several years, students have come up with their own 
ways of getting the most out of their buy back experience. Instead 
of selling them back to a store, some opt to sell them directly to 
other students. By cutting out the middle man, the seller gets paid 
more than they would at bookstore and the buyer pays less. 

Troutman said buying one of his textbooks saved him at least 
$10 and was less than the used price at the bookstores. This pro- 
vides a good deal for both students. Paragi admits he can under- 
stand why students go this route, but there is one drawback. If the 
student ends up dropping the course, they can't take it back to the 
bookstore and get a full refund. 



Others have actually gone online in search of a solution. There 
are several web sites that allow students to buy and sell books for 
less than retail value. Sites like and get thousands of hits every day. has a three step process that allows students to 
sell their books online with the click of a button. Students get 
more money for their books, and the average textbook shopper has 
a better chance of finding low prices online. For those who still 

prefer the traditional route, Paragi suggests that students sell their 
books back early in the week if possible. As the bookstore becomes 
overstocked with texts, the amount each person will receive for 
them does go down. 

In contrast, Troutman believes students are the only ones who 
can make the situation better. He thinks they should all work 
together instead of treating bookstores as the only option.

24 Hours 

Finals Week 

"Finals week." 

It's the phrase college students dread. The time of year that 
can turn even the University's best and brightest into nervous 
wrecks. Why all the stress? Students have already experienced 
mid'terms, papers, and projects. The fact is that most wait until 
the end of the semester to put forth their best efforts, and finals 
week represents the last chance to redeem or improve our acad- 
emic standing before grades are set in stone. Many students find 
themselves studying more in a few days than they have for the 
whole semester. In recognition of the pressures of finals week, 
the University takes measures to reduce the stress on its stu- 

The Undergraduate Library remains open 24 hours for stu- 
dents who need a quiet place to study at any time of the day. 
Hundreds of students crowded the library, some struggling to 
find a seat. The Saturday before finals is designated as the cam- 
pus wide Reading Day. Administrators set this day aside for stu- 
dents to get some serious studying done. McKinley Health 
Center offers services for those having trouble dealing with the 
pressure of finals, and the Relaxation Room offers a laid-back 
atmosphere where students can participate in a variety of activ- 
ities to get their minds off the books. 

Many students take finals week into their own hands by 
designing individual plans for success. Clarence Walker, sopho- 
more in LAS, notices that finals get harder each year, leading 
him to spend much more time at the library than he has in the 
past. Of course, there were others who made similar attempts 
but found themselves drooling into their textbooks after falling 

Some prefer a livelier atmosphere to keep them awake and 
interested in their studies. For them, Moonstruck Cafe was the 
perfect place. Passers-by on Wright Street observed students 
poring over notes for upcoming exams through the large front 

There are a variety of regiments students follow on the actu- 
al day of a final. Most will review major concepts, while others 
simply use it as a day to relax before the test. For years, students 
taking exams at Lincoln Hall have followed a special ritual: 
rubbing Abraham Lincoln's nose on their way up the steps. 


Although no official statistics can be reported, Abe has proba- 
bly saved many students from academic mediocrity. 

In spite of the good efforts that the University of Illinois has 
put forth in regards to finals week, students think there could 
be some improvements. 

"Grades shouldn't be based on just two tests because some 
students don't test well," Walker said. 

Some also say it would be helpful if final papers were not 
due so close to final exams because it often leaves students 
struggling to juggle both. A significant portion of the 
University community would benefit if finals were not sched- 
uled on weekends or so close to the holidays. 

However, the most common student suggestion is that 
Reading Day be switched to a day during the week. The 
Saturday before exam week would be used as a day to study 
regardless. However, one thing remains certain-no matter what 
is changed, finals week will remain the bittersweet end to a 
long semester.

While the majority of the student population was on 
vacation in far-off destinations or just enjoying a month of 
homework-free relaxation during winter break, 20,000 col- 
lege students, missionaries and church leaders converged on 
the University campus for the 20 Annual Student 
Mission Convention. 

Participants spent five days, from Dec.27 to 31, on cam- 
pus, living in the empty dorms of full-time students and 
attending seminars about bible study and prayer. Speakers 
like Jim Tebbe and Ray Aldred expounded on a wide vari- 
ety of topics affecting faith, including cross-cultural conver- 
sion and identity, campus evangelism, and radical disciple- 

Over 350 mission agencies, seminaries and Christian 
colleges and universities also attended the five-day festival, 
offering young Christians the chance to explore the world 
or join the holy service. 

While the seminar might have been welcomed by the 
thousands who paid to be there, it was another story for the 
students living in the dorms, who had to relinquish their 
beds, and store all their computers, stereos and personal 
belongings into their closets before leaving for break. 

A World Wide Mission Conference 

"It was a pain to throw all my stuff into my closet," said 
John Meeks, freshman in LAS. "I had to take my computer 
apart and clean out my mini fridge." 

Employees of Campus Dining Services also stayed on 
during break to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to the par- 

The theme of this year's Urbana conference was, "Your 
Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done." Musical guests like 
Blood Related rocked all participants in a concert at 
Assembly Hall. It was a spectacle to be seen, complete with 
a light show. 

Urbana 2003 concluded with communion for all partici- 
pants at midnight, New Year's Eve.

Red Herring 

Recipe for vegan Rice Pilaf 


Garlic; rice; spices including 
oregano, dill, paprika, salt, bay leaf; 
red pepper, green onions, tempeh 

Saute garlic in a pan. Add rice, 
and saute that until cooked thor- 
oughly. Add spices, mix well, and 
then add other ingredients. 
Continue stirring over heat until 
vegetables are cooked. 

They serve it with a breaded egg- 

Something for eve ly one 

Upon stepping into The Red Herring restaurant, the first thing you notice 
is the smell — a combination of curry and oregano, half Asian and half Italian 
inspired — fills the air. This mix of scents is as vital a part of the basement 
ambiance as the whitewashed cinder block walls, red concrete floor with elab- 
orate painted-on rugs and eclectic mix of furniture and dinnerware. Despite 
the fact that it's a slow day, enthusiastic conversation and ethnic Latin 
American music fill the air, adding to the welcoming environment. But the 
warm, bohemian atmosphere is not the reason people find their way to this 
restaurant on the corner of Matthews and Oregon. 

The Red Herring has been around for at least 20 years, according to cur- 
rent manager Ileana Costescu. While it has always served as one of the stand- 
out vegetarian restaurants in Champaign-Urbana, it has only become strictly 
vegan in recent years. 

"There is this idea that there is no food out there," Costescu said. "The 
reasons the restaurant was started are the community needed a vegan restau- 
rant, for the health benefits and because of the animal cruelty issue." 

Costescu said transitioning from vegetarian to entirely vegan made sense 
because it ensured that animal products like cheese and egg would not mix 
with other foods. Organically grown vegetables, wheat and soy products are 
also key in making The Red Herring a healthier, more animal-friendly choice 
compared to most of the dining options on campus. 

"We try to keep it pretty healthy," Costescu said. "It's definitely healthier 
than McDonalds, Wendy's, Biaggi's... stuff like that. You'll get more vegetables 
and less fat than anywhere else on campus. It's healthier food and it's cruelty 

While The Red Herring does specifically cater to vegetarians and vegans, a 
large portion of its cliental is made up of health-conscious meat eaters. 
"We like the food," said Chip Burkhardt, a history professor at the University, 
who along with history Professor Harry Liebersohn, eats lunch there most 

"We think it's good for us; we come after we go swimming. It's nice and 


accessible and the food is fresh," Burkhardt said. 

Liebersohn agrees, noting the quality and quantity of the food. 

"The portions are ample and the deserts are excellent," he said. "I'm 
a special fan of the soups." 

Among the key ingredients are seitan, a wheat-gluten protein, tern- 
peh, a fermented soybean product with a texture similar to processed 
poultry, a variety of spices and a long list of vegetables. While the foods 
used in the cooking may seem peculiar to some meat-eaters, taste is 
what surprises most first-time customers, Costescu said. 

"People can't believe it's vegan," she said. "I want to show people 
you can eat well, it tastes fabulous and still not hurt animals." 

Taste is also what keeps people coming back, in some cases after 
they've graduated. 

"When I was a student here, I used to work in the foreign language 
building, so it was convenient," said Kathy McNicholas, a 2003 gradu- 
ate. "Now I'm used to it, and I come back whenever I'm in the area." 

Burkhardt said while he enjoys the food, the unique opportunity for 
interaction between students and staff is also something he likes about 
the restaurant. 

"I usually get a high five from one of the students who works here," 
Burkhardt said. "I'd say a professor getting a high five from a student is 
really pretty special." 

Between the quality of the food, the health benefits, the atmosphere 
and the animal-rights concerns, Costescu said there are great reasons to 
eat at The Red Herring. 

"All sorts of people come here," she said. "The thing that drives me 
the most is the animal rights issue. Being healthy and eating healthy."

Tom Seals, director of the Counseling Center, 
deals with many student problems on campus. 
For some students, winter depression is a serious 
illness. Seals said clinical winter depression is 
actually the same as other forms of depression, 
only in a seasonal form. 

"Grey, overcast days have a psychological 
effect... that contributes to depression," Seals 
said. Many events in the course of the 
Christmas break can establish a positive outlook. 
Seals mentioned that students often place "undue 
hope" on a new semester after a fresh start and a 
happy holiday experience. These hopes put pres- 
sure on individuals, and cause them to re-evalu- 


ate what happened if they don't succeed. 

Seals said those with seasonal disorders often 
use visible spectrum lights to stimulate cones in 
the retina. 

"By and large, the student population is a 
healthy population," he said. "Depression is usu- 
ally higher in young people, but is also more 

Treatment is also available through the 
Counseling Center or McKinley Mental Health. 
Sears gave the following questions to evaluate. Is 
the depression persistent? Is it every year? Is it 
connected to anniversaries? How sad do you 
feel? Are you losing weight? Are you suicidal? 

Certain lifestyle changes can help. Seals rec- 
jommended enjoying food, going to IMPE, talking 
l to friends, getting out instead of being isolated, 
jand talking to a counselor. 

If a friend is depressed, Seals and Counseling 

Center Pamphlets give advice for dealing with 
the situation. Do not try to cheer up the friend 
because it establishes a difference in the happy 
friend and the depressed person. This will hurt 
communication ties. Listen sympathetically and 
offer suggestions, if the depressed welcomes them. 
Invite the friend out, but expect a no. Don't be 
frustrated with failed attempts to help the friend. 

Seals recommended those who think they 
might feel gloomy to look at the Counseling 
Center website at He said 
this could be a good first resource because it 
serves as a good first, self-help informational tool. 
The website offers an online version of the 
brochures found in the Counseling Center office.

The image of a YMCA doesn't exactly fit the 
University branch. While most YMCA's are mainly a 
physical fitness center, the scholarly building on the 
corner of Wright and Chalmers streets has speakers, 
classes, and hosts nine student associations. One of 
the YMCA's main goals is educating people about the 
world around them. 

"We're a social awareness organization," said 
Program Director Rebecca Nieto. 

For 83 years, the YMCA has been working 
towards that goal. It has a weekly speaker program. 
According to Nieto, the Friday Forum is the longest 
running program on campus. Every Friday at noon 
speakers talk about current social issues. This spring, 
the theme was "Searching for Democracy: Local and 
Global Perspectives." 

On Feb. 20, Professor Belder Fields spoke about 
the relationship between human rights and democra- 
cy. Fields is a local activist and author. He spoke 
about the state as an enforcer of human right but a 
major violator as well. 

Speakers are usually proactive citizens that want 
to educate social unrest, Nieto said. 

Other speakers included University of Illinois pro- 
fessors Tom Ginsburg, Bob Pahre and Earl Kellogg. 
There were two student speakers as well. Issues 

addressed included democracy in Afghanistan, per- 
spectives of faith in a diverse culture, and democracy 
on the internet. 

If you want to stop by for the afternoon lectures, 
you can lunch too. The Y Thai Eatery serves lunch 
for all the lecture series. 

The YMCA also sponsors a Tuesday afternoon 
lecture series. This spring the series is titled "Know 
Your University." The goal of the series is to educate, 
yet interact with the community and provide an 
open forum for discussion. 

Issues addressed included the University's reduced 
budget, the supposed liberal control of universities, 
and the myths versus the realities of student drinking 

Nine student organizations are also housed at the 
YMCA. The Campus Vegetarian Society, the 
Philippine Student Association, and the Rainforest 
Action Group are just a few. 

Students can also register for non-credit classes 
such in dance, martial arts, and photography. 

In every aspect of the YMCA, their mission is "to 
challenge and nurture the mind and spirit of individ- 
uals and communities, to develop and practice ethi- 
cal principles and responsible leadership for social 
justice and the integrity of our natural world."

>>Low-Carb Crazy 


After people gain the "freshman 15", they're looking 
for anything to help get the scale down. This year the 
solution to weight problems came with the Atkins and 
South Beach diets. Both these diets have exploded all 
over the country. Everyone from Jimmy John's to T.G.I. 
Friday's to Subway now have "Atkins approved" menu 

"Atkins is pretty much taking over the world," said 
Lisa Burgoon, SportWell Coordination and Nutritionist. 

Burgoon meets with students who seek help with 
weight management. Many students come in once to get 
advice, but she works mainly with students who have seri- 
ous weight problems. She helps students create a diet that 
is realistic and will help them lose weight safely. 

"If you're going to go on a diet, you should have a diet 
you can do for the rest of your life," Burgoon said. 

According to Burgoon, the Atkins diet is too restric- 
tive. The body needs about 130 grams of carbohydrates a 
day to function. Major organs, including the brain, are 
glucose dependant. One hundred grams of carbohydrates 
is highest amount allowed in the Atkins diet. Burgoon 
thinks this isn't a good idea. 

"My biggest concern is if you're cutting out a whole 
food group, you're missing a whole lot of nutrients," 
Burgoon said. 

Carbohydrates, which include bread, fruit and some 
vegetables, have fiber and phytochemicals, which are nec- 
essary for a healthy life. People who eat more fruit and 
vegetables are less likely to get cancer, Burgoon said. 

She says she will help students create a low carbohy- 
drate diet, but won't allow student to completely cut car- 
bohydrates from their diets. Forty percent carbohydrates 
in a diet is the lowest amount that Burgoon considers 

Though she doesn't like either, the South Beach diet is 
much better. The South Beach diet emphasizes low intake 
of carbohydrates, but isn't as strict as Atkins. Developed 
in Miami, it encourages eating fish and chicken. It also 
encourages eating whole grain carbohydrates, as opposed 
to items such as white bread. 

Modifying one's diet is the key, Burgoon said. She 
encourages eating only when hungry and having smaller 
portion sizes. 

Even though she doesn't particularly like these two 
diet fads, she is glad they are calling attention to the obe- 
sity problem is America. 

Kim Ogurek, senior in ACES and dietetics major, also 
criticizes the low carbohydrate diets. Ogurek works as a 
nutrition peer educator on campus and is concerned with

the current trends. 

"It drives me crazy because people think it's healthy," 
Ogurek said. 

She points out, there haven't been any long-term stud- 
ies on diets like Atkins. She is afraid many people on 
these types of diets will have heart problems later in life. 

Ogurek compares the low carb craze to the low fat 
craze that brought foods such as Snack Wells cookies. She 
is concerned that people will overeat because foods are 
"low carb." 

Much of the low carb explosion is due to the ease and 
convenience of the diet, Ogurek said. Restaurants and 
grocery stores now offer a wide variety of low carbohy- 
drate options, from ice cream to hamburgers. 

Subway offers a Turkey Bacon Melt Wrap, Burger King 
offers a hamburger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun, 
and Ruby Tuesday's has cheesecake with a nut crust on its 

Ogurek said this isn't the solution to weight problems. 
She sees many problems in the campus lifestyle. Students 
tend to lead very sedentary lifestyles due to classes and 
studying. Many people don't exercise, especially during 
the winter. She also sees a problem in the overcrowded 
IMPE workout center. She says many people don't want 

to wait for a treadmill or machine, so they end up not 
working out at all. 

She sees problems in the restaurants in campustown. 
Only in a college town can you get delivery until three or 
four in the morning, Ogurek said. She also blames restau- 
rants like La Bamba, which caters specifically to after- 
hours patrons. 

"That place is packed at three in the morning," said 

Drinking is another major cause of weight problems on 
campus. Ogurek said supposed low carbohydrate beers, 
such as Michelob Ultra, claim to be a "low carb" alterna- 
tive, but really aren't that different than most beers. 

She stresses a lifestyle change in order to lose weight. 
Downsizing portions, becoming more active, and avoiding 
eating when bored can all help lead to a healthier weight. 
Though diets such as Atkins and South Beach seem easy, 
she says in the long run those diets are harder. Ogurek 
believes students are much better off making smaller 
changes for long term instead. 

"If you want to work hard enough it'll happen. You 
just can't do [Atkins] as a long-term thing. You can't 
deprive yourself," Ogurek said.

ransfer Student 


Freshmen are notorious for being lost in Champaign. They 
don't know where anything is, and they feel lost and confused 
for the first few weeks. Classes, teachers, upperclassmen, and the 
size of campus intimidate them. But what about transfer stu- 
dents? How does it feel to come to a new school midway 
through you college career? You're older, you're experienced, 
and you're supposed to know what you're doing. But you're real- 
ly just a freshman all over again. 

Tyler Kastner, junior in LAS, tried two schools before he 
found his home at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign. He transferred to Illinois mainly to work with the 
basketball team. His goal is to become a coach, and he felt 
being a manager for the Illini Baskbetball team would help him 
gain the connections and experience. 

Though Kastner had motivation to transfer to Illinois, it was 
his friend that prompted him to consider the idea. His friend 
was transferring and thought Kastner should transfer too. He 
quickly agreed. 

"There was no thought process whatsoever," Kastner said. 

Transferring to Illinois has been an adjustment academically 
for Kastner, who says classes here are more extensive and faster 
paced than his other schools. 

"I'm still trying to get adjusted," he said. 

Still, he is happy with the move. He feels that a degree from 
Illinois will help him get a job. He's grateful for the opportuni- 
ties he's had at Illinois. 

"Basketball is a huge part of my life. Getting to see one of 
the best Dl programs here is kind of a blessing," he said. 

Jared Brooks, junior in LAS, attended Lake Forest College 
for two years before attending Illinois. Brooks, who always had a 
dream to attend Illinois, ended up at Lake Forest because he 
wanted to play sports. Due to knee problems, he wasn't able to 
play as much as he hoped, and Brooks decided to transfer his 
sophomore year. 

Socially, the transfer from a small school to a large university 
was not hard for him. He had a few friends from high school 
that attended Illinois and ended up renting an apartment with 
one of them. 

According to Brooks, moving from a school with about 
1,200 people to a university with over 30,000 people was quite a 
culture shock. 

"At my old school, everybody knew everybody. It's very 

weird transferring to a big university," Brooks said. 

One of his biggest struggles when he came to school was 
learning the campus. 

"The map was my savior the first two weeks of school. You 
feel lost at first, but you get into a routine," he said. 

He is happy with his change but wishes the University 
offered more help to transfer students. Brooks said after you've 
become acclimated to one school's system, it's very hard to 
adapt to a new one. He also wishes he had more school spirit. 

"As a transfer student, you don't get the whole blue and 
orange feeling," he said.

find her interests and passions. She chose Illinois because she 
knew it had a good speech communications program. 

Hendee arrived at Illinois in the fall of 2002 with two other 
friends, and decided to rent an apartment together instead of 
living in the dormitories. 

"I was one of the luckier ones," she said. 

Adjusting to the academics at Illinois was the hardest 
change for her, but she still enjoys classes here. 

"The quality of academics here is amazing," Hendee said. 

Vince Tran, junior in Business, went to Harper College in 
Palatine for two years before transferring to Illinois. For Tran, 
going to a community college helped him realize school is 
important. Tran applied at Illinois because it is ranked highly 
for its business school, and it's economical. 

He said he was nervous about transferring to Illinois, but felt 
better once he came to school. Tran also added that having 
friends at Illinois has helped him adjust as well. 

"The hardest thing was getting used to the exams here. I 
kind of struggled my first semester here," he said. 

Tran, who got A's easily at Harper, is now struggling to get 
B's. Though he finds the classes harder, he likes the structure of 
classes. He likes the freedom of big lectures because they usually 
don't take attendance and teachers rarely call on students for 

Tran also echoed other transfer students saying that moving 
to the campus is one of the biggest adjustments. 

"I was just overwhelmed with how big it is," Tran said.

Technological advancement is a hallmark of American soci- 
ety. It has made our lives easier and propelled us into the twenty 
first century. Yet, as with any good thing, it has its drawbacks. 
Computer viruses became a source of public concern for the first 
time in the late 1990's. Since then, computer systems have 
become more sophisticated, but so have the computer hackers 
who create viruses. 

Viruses have received much more attention in recent years 
because they have become so widespread. The University of 
Illinois was hit by several computer viruses this year. It is a 
problem that CITES (Campus Information Technologies and 
Educational Services) and the University faced head-on. 

Several viruses found their way into the University of 
Illinois community. As Anne Gleason's September 5, 2003 
Daily Illini article title clearly stated, CITES plays doctor to 
campus computers. 

Mike Corn, CITES Security director, said, 'Bagle' and 
'Mydoon' were two of the most prevalent viruses. They attack 
computers via e-mail. You will usually receive an e-mail with a 

attack of the 

Computer Virus 

non-descriptive subject and your computer becomes infected 
when you click on the attachment. The viruses then search for 
: all of your e-mail files and send themselves to other addresses." 

Gus Hallmon, Junior in LAS attests to the prevalence of 
these viruses. He is lab technician in the Clark computer lab 
and is well aware of such problems. 

"My computer has received some of the e-mail viruses but it 
has not been attacked with a virus," he said. 

Fortunately, Hallmon was familiar with the virus and knew 
not to open the attachment. Since viruses are now capable of 
replicating themselves, it's not hard to see how the viruses 
spread so quickly. 

Many University of Illinois students use AOL Instant 
Messenger to communicate with friends and family members 
online. Students love it because it sends messages immediately 
and saves money on long distance calls. Unfortunately, a hacker 
found a way to infiltrate AOL Instant Messenger as well. Corn 
says it appeared as a pop-up advertising new software, but auto- 
matically spammed people on your Buddy List instead. The 


quick and easy transmission of viruses may have left you won- 
dering if there are any solutions to the problem. 

CITES and the University of Illinois have devised several 
methods of combating the epidemic. The University of Illinois 
offers free anti-virus software to faculty, staff, and students. In 
fact, Corn says the software is required for any computer 
attached to the network, from dorm rooms to computer labs. 
The software immediately scans your computer for viruses and 
gives it protection against them. Additionally, it is preconfig- 
ured to update the list of viruses it needs to scan for. 

Corn has several other suggestions for how students can pro- 
tect their own PC's. He warned not to open e-mail attachments, 
and try not to send them. If you truly believe that it is legiti- 
mate, consult with the sender to verify. Always be skeptical 
and be careful with private information. Most importantly, 
Corn believes is imperative to remember you are working in a 
shared network and your actions affect other people.

December 6 was supposed to be an exciting day for the 
women's swimming and diving team. It was the scheduled date for 
the Illini Open, the team's second — and last — home meet of the 
season. But it wasn't to be. 

"We were planning on it, but we couldn't get enough 
interest," said Coach Sue Novitsky. 

The team's only home campaign of the season was a dou- 
ble win over Illinois State and Toledo Oct. 24. Because so much of 
the year was spent on the road, Novitsky 's squad had to adjust to 
some of the ups and downs of being the perpetual visitor. 

"There's positive factors to it and there's negative," 
Novitsky said of all the travel. "The positive is that they learn to 
swim well in a travel situation. The other side is that it's tiring. 
The month of January, we spent more time in other people's pools 
than our own. We were on the road that much. Especially juggling 
class work can be tough with the travel." 

However, all that travel wasn't necessarily bad. Junior 
swimmer Kristen Koepcke said that, while the road trips were often 
tiring, they helped the team adjust to being away from home. 

"It's kind of a benefit because when Big Ten rolls around 
we're used to travel," Koepcke said. "It was nice having home 
meets, but it's nice to swim in other meets and see other pools." 

In January the team also enjoyed a two-week trip to 
Hawaii, where it trained and competed in the HPA Open, setting 
seven pool records. 

"When we went to Hawaii, our captains did a great job of 
doing some team building things," Novitsky said. "One of the ones 
in Hawaii was you had to learn something new about your room- 
mate. We had one competition and then did a lot of training, but 
we also got some time to go to the beach, have some fun." 

Koepcke said the close team bond was one of the most 

noticeable differences between this year and last. 

"We, as a team, have become closer," Koepcke said. "We're 
more confident in our ability to compete at a high level. You can tell 
we're more confident in the way we're swimming." 

Despite losing five key athletes to graduation, freshman Barbie 
Viney said many of the improvements made this year will stay with the 
team next season. 

"I think a lot of things are going to carry over," she said. "We're 
going to miss the seniors — they're a big part of the team — but I think 
the juniors are going to step up and be as strong." 

However, one thing that has become obvious through all the 
time together has been that this team has bonded. 

"When you're stuck on a bus for long periods of time you can't 
help but get to know somebody better," Novitsky said.

»Cheerleading means 

^eeping the Faith 

Rebuilding has been the main focus for the cheerlead- 
ing team this season. More than half of this year's mem- 
bers are new because a large part of the team graduated 
last May. 

They did not compete this year; instead they focused 
on building up experience. Coach Stephanie Record said 
the team's ability exceeded expectations. 

She attributed the improvement to the team's work 
ethic. Cheerleaders practice three times a week and each 
member is also required to attend three weight lifting ses- 
sions a week. Despite the time commitment, the team 
has also improved their academic standing 

"We have the highest GPA as a squad," said Derek 
Hem, captain and senior in LAS. 

Elizabeth Glavash, freshman in LAS, said that despite 
the amount of practice it took, being a member of the 
team was worth it. 

"If I wasn't cheering, I wouldn't be doing anything 
else," she said. 

The team has 30 members; during basketball season 
they are divided into two groups of 15. One half cheers 
men's basketball and the other women's basketball. 

The cheerleaders contribute energy and enthusiasm to 
the games. 

"Sometimes when the team isn't doing well, they're 
the only ones," Record said. 

This year's Paint The Hall Orange event during the 
game against Michigan State "was the best I've ever 
cheered," said Brooke Hartman, captain and senior in 
MBA. The crowd and the team were so enthusiastic they 
made our job much easier, she said. 

Cheering at basketball games is more structured than 
cheering at football games, said Glavash. This is because 
basketball games are shorter and follow more rigid guide- 
lines than football. While there's a set routine for basket- 
ball, but during football games the cheerleaders follow the

during a game at Assembly Hall.

strength and balance to perform many routines. 


"There's a different atmosphere," Hem said. "Outside, 
the energy escapes. Inside you can look at the crowd 
wearing orange shirts. United looking toward the same 

In addition to cheering during football and basketball 
games, the team does public appearances at events for the 
University of Illinois. The cheerleaders attend pep rallies, 
participate in Homecoming events and cheer the bigger 
games for other sports. 

Hartman has participated Hometown Heroes, a pro- 
gram for young children where athletes talk to kids about 
the importance of good sportsmanship and the dangers of 
drugs and alcohol. 

The team also runs a children's clinic during some bas- 
ketball games. A few hours before the game, the cheer- 
leaders teach a group of children a fight song and some 
choreography, which the children perform at halftime, 
Hartman said. 

These events are a way for the team to contribute 
more than enthusiasm to the community and bring in 
more support for the Fighting Illini.

In pitch black darkness, a figure moves robotically 
across the stage lit only by five glowing, red balls attached 
to his back. One by one, he removes the balls from the 
storage bag on his back and begins to juggle them. All 
that is visible are five red orbs that seem to move effort- 
lessly through the air. 

The Capacitor show at the Colwell Playhouse 
February 20-21 was meant to be a journey through man's 
relationship with technology and the universe. "Within 
Outer Spaces" featured a cast of seven men and women, 
playing out different aspects of man's life and how tech- 
nology and the universe affected those aspects. There 
were no words, only movement set to techno music. As 
the dancers performed on stage, a slide show was project- 
ed on the backdrop screen, showing photos of planets, 
stars and galaxies. 

"You could tell it was about planets and life," said 
Elizabeth Bush, a graduate student. 

Capacitor has existed since 1997, and "Within Outer 
Spaces" has been running since 2000.

"Within Outer Spaces" is a product of the Capacitor 
Lab, a forum that brings together scientists, artists, and 
technologists towards the creation of an original perfor- 
mance piece," Director Jodi Lomask wrote. "Through 
cross-disciplinary communication, creative and technical 
problem solving, and dynamic discussion, the Capacitor 
Lab is a vehicle for the creation of our richly layered, 
thought-provoking yet humorous performances." 

The journey consisted of 14 performance pieces, which 
included a Star Birth, Particles, Waveforms, Earth Moon 
Duet and Connectivity, which was taken from Stephen 

The range of talents used in the Capacitor show was 
astounding. There were dancers with flames on their 
heads, being lit on fire by other dancers with flaming 
batons. There were two artists suspended from the ceil-

"Obsessed with the mechanics of the human body as 
well as the machines that propel the body through space, 
Capacitor artists have become masters of the rigging sys- 
tems and large-scale props designed to stretch the limits of 
physical poetry," Lomask wrote. 

Although the performance was so carefully put togeth- 
er, some audience members were confused about what the 
artists were trying to convey. 

"I'm not sure what it was about," said one woman who 
asked to remain anonymous. "I guess it was about cre-

Capacitor has performed both in the United States 
and internationally, including appearances in Europe and 
South East Asia. It always aims to convey a sense that we 
as humans are all connected and intertwined, and that 
our constantly evolving state of technological advance- 
ment causes us to redefine ourselves. 

"As the world deals with the rapid changes brought 
about by scientific advancement, Capacitor seeks to pre-

ing those advances that redefine what it means to be mor- 
tal," Lomask wrote. "By creating highly visual perfor-

The use of the verb "to mash" is rare 
(except for potatoes), but Andrew Schwartz 
used it to describe the Monster Truck Rally 
that his fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi, attended. 

"I had never been to one myself," Schwartz 

The rally, sponsored by Monster Truck 
Nationals, roared through Assembly Hall on 
February 7. Steven Lefkoff, a member of 

Alpha Epsilon Pi (and a Chevy fan), orga- 
nized the fraternity event and, while dismiss- 
ing gender 

stereotypes, remarked that monster truck 
racing could possibly be, "the most manly 
thing in the world." 

Part of the MTN showdown is a monster 
truck "mashing" competition, where competi- 
tors are judged on their technique of mashing 

Top: In addition to crashing and 

smashing, monster trucks also 

destroy smaller cars with fire. 

Right: A monster truck in action. 


dilapidated cars filled with tires. These tires 
produce bounce. 

"The tires are bigger than you are," 
Schwartz said. 

Another part of the competition includes a 
race around the track on four-wheelers. 
Home-towner Scott Miller won the Quad 
Feature in front of his friends and family. 

The show also included the "American 
Thunder jet powered jeep," which is a smaller 
jeep with a jet-powered engine that travels 
super fast. 

Lefkoff, who is from Atlanta, says that he 
has experienced sold-out 70,000 fan monster 
truck-smashing experiences. He compared the 
events to pro-wrestling and NASCAR. 

"They're weird but fun... it's like pro 
wrestling," he said. 

On the other hand, when asked if the 
event was a sport, he replied that if one were 
to consider NASCAR a sport, then the level 
of competition between the two is similar, so 
then monster trucks must be a sport also. 

Lefkoff said it was an inexpensive event to 

spend a Saturday night. Many locals go to root 
on specific contenders, such as Miller. Others, 
like the fraternity, just go to see big trucks 
"mash" little cars. 

From all of the hype and destruction, 
someone actually wins: 

"The Big Dawg and driver Doug Noelke 
from Union, MO wins again. This makes his 
second win in 4 final round appearances. And 
better yet it was his first time ever to race in 
the U of I Assembly Hall, MTN said. 

Lefkoff said the whole process is a tourna- 
ment. There are three rounds and a bracket 
system. The winner is chosen accordingly 
from these brackets. 

More than just a bunch of huge trucks 
doing some mashing, the monster truck rally 
was a bonding experience for the members of 
Alpha Epsilon Pi. Assembly Hall became 
monstrous for one night, and according to 
Lefkoff, kept his adrenaline pumping, too.

Forget pay-per-view, this is 

Illini WrestleMania 

On Feb. 8 the Illini wrestlers were hungry. Two days 
earlier, they had suffered a painful loss to No. 1 5 
Minnesota, and were ready to fight their way back to the 
top ranking they had just let slip through their fingers. 
However, the loss cost more than the first-place ranking, 
as it robbed the team of what had previously been an 
undefeated season. 

"It was our first loss of the season and it had been 
tough to take," junior Anton Dietzen said. "We felt like it 
was time to redeem it." 

It would be the squad's first and last loss of the season, 
and the wrestlers sent the second wave of W's pouring in 
when they rolled over the Badgers 30-9 at Huff Hall. 

Despite a few disappointing matches at the Big 10 and 
NCAA championships, Illinois fought their way to a sev- 
enth-place finish when nationals were over Mar. 20. 
However, it was the win against Wisconsin that gave the 
team a much-needed energy boost. 

"I think our team just needed to rebound," senior cap- 
tain Jason Potter said. "We knew Minnesota was a good 
team, but we didn't perform the way we should have. 
With Wisconsin, the way the individual matches were 
matched up we knew we could win, we just had to come 
out and perform." 

Wisconsin gave up an easy 12 points by forfeiting at 
the 165 and heavyweight weight classes and Illini victo- 
ries by Dietzen (149 pounds), sophomore Pete Friedl 
(174), junior Brian Glynn (184), junior Mark Jayne (133) 
and sophomore Alex Tirapelle (157) gave the Illini the 
points they needed to secure a clear victory. 

Illinois's greatest asset this season was its determina- 
tion and intra-squad competitiveness, Potter said. 

"It's the first time really across the board everybody 
was extremely competitive," Potter said. "Every match we 
went into with at least the possibility that we could win. 
The competition made dual meets more fun because any- 
body could be the person that could win it for us." 

Dietzen said leadership was another strength, which 
developed motivation among all the athletes. 

"We had really good leadership this year," he said. 
"Alex Tirapelle got second last year and he was just a 
model of hard work — he was always the last to leave prac- 
tice every day. Along with the leadership of the captains, 
he really got us motivated."

Freshman Dan Zeman said the captains were key in 
easing the challenges of transitioning from high school to 
college competition. 

"They're great people," Zeman said. "I especially 
became very close with Jason Potter. 1 was a freshman 
coming in and he helped me adjust. When I had to lose 
weight, he'd come in and be there even when he didn't 
need to be, just for support." 

Part of the team's strength was the depth of its skill 
throughout the squad, Zeman said. 

"At first it was kind of overwhelming coming into a 
team with all the guys you thought were untouchable in 
high school," he said. "In high school, since they're all so 
good, they seem like these machines. Then you meet 
them and you find out they all have great personalities." 

Zeman said while there were only four seniors on the 
37-man team, they were vital motivators and competitors 
both on and off the mat, making long practices less drain- 

"(Senior) Patrick Heffernan's biggest contribution was 
his attitude," Potter said. "He's just a funny kid. He was 
always ready to go at practice, always enjoyed what he was 

Dietzen thought senior Eric Novak also motivated the 
squad in practice. 

"Novak was always there," Dietzen said. "He was a 
[good practice partner for us, always making sure we were 
getting the workouts we needed." 

174-pounder Ben Hay also took a leadership role by 
example, Potter said, and managed to make his last season 
his best. 

"He set a great example for the rest of the team," 
Potter said. "There were two other guys who were very 
competitive at his weight class fighting for his spot, and 
Ben got it stepped up and made it to nationals." 

The close ties developed on wrestling teams as athletes 
fight to get in shape, make weight and win matches are a 
key part of what sets it apart from other sports, Zeman 
said, and the extremely supportive attitude of the Illini 
separate them from other wrestlers, he added. 

"There's a strong sense of camaraderie," Zeman said. 
"Everybody knows what you're going through. There isn't 
anything a guy on this team wouldn't do for you." 

Looking forward to next year, Potter said the experi- 
ence of the returning squad members provides a distinct 
advantage over their opponents. 

"I think that our team has a huge head start," Potter 
said. "We're not gonna see anyone step into the ring who 
hasn't wrestled a varsity match." 

The motivation to improve on this year will drive the 
team to improve for the 2004-2005 season, Zeman said. 

"There's not a guy on this team that will be happy 
with second place," he said. "That's the type of wrestlers 
Coach (Mark) Johnson recruits; he wants guys that are 
hungry. We want number one, and that's all we want. 
We'll accept other things, but we don't want them."

"This is thriller, thriller night. And no one's gonna 
save you from the beast about to strike. You know it's 
thriller, thriller night. You're fighting for your life inside a 
killer, thriller tonight." 

Everyone knows the lyrics to arguably Michael 
Jackson's biggest hit, "Thriller". But no one ever expected 
to come to life on stage right before their eyes. On Friday 
the 13 th, "Thriller" exploded onto the stage at this past 
year's Cotton Club and grabbed everybody's attention. 

Part of a play on the performance's date and an attempt 
to improve the show, "Thriller" excited everyone, both 
audience and crew. William Whitfield, senior in FAA and 
chairperson of the Cotton Club Committee, wanted to 
incorporate bigger performances within the show. He 
wanted to start the show with something that would be 
exciting, as opposed to earlier years where there wasn't a 
distinct beginning and end. 

Krystina Davidson, senior in LAS and stage manager, 
said she really liked the "Thriller" performance because no 
one was expecting it. She said the choreography was 
extremely hard, but all the performers did an excellent job. 

Raphael Smith, junior in LAS, caught people's atten- 
tion with his two original performances. Smith sang his 
own music entitled "Sexy Senorita" and "Disconnect". He 
also choreographed dancers into his performance. Latrina 
Denson, advisor for the Cotton Club Committee, felt 
Smith's performance was good enough to be on MTV. 

"He is definitely somebody that is going to be a star," 
Denson said. 

The theme for this year's show was "Come with da 
noise, We'll bring da funk" and put emphasis on remem- 
bering art from history. There was a decade tribute com- 
bining the Harlem Renaissance and the '80s. Harlem 
Renaissance performances included a reading of a 


Left: Dance group Unexxposed gives an energetic performance. 
Top Right: Rap was also featured during the night. 
Bottom Right: A tribute to the Harlem Renaissance by Gerry Welch, a 
member of Sudden Impact. 

Langston Hughes poem and a song from the musical "Ain't 
Mishehavin' ". 

According to Denson, the crew really wanted to 
emphasize what the Cotton Club was all about. Monique 
Myles, senior in Business and technical director for the 
Cotton Club Committee, said it's really important to 
remember the original Cotton Club was done for a white 
audience only and that they transcended that and now it's 
[celebrated by all. 

For Victoria Ogunsanya, sophomore in Business and 
vice president of the Central Black Student Union, the 
show reflecting on history was important. 

"The purpose of Cotton Club was to be an outlet for 
iirt for African- Americans on campus and in the commu- 
pity. It's keeping people aware of history and of where we 
pome from," Ogunsanya said. 

Outkast's hit song "Hey Ya" served as the finale for the 

show. Denson felt it was a great way to bridge the show 
and time periods together. 

Everyone had their favorite performances and reasons 
why the show was a success. Davidson felt one of the most 
valuable things Cotton Club brings to campus is the 
opportunity to perform. 

"I feel that it's definitely important for the minority 
population to see themselves in their best light," he said. 
The Cotton Club can showcase talent. We get to see a side 
of you that no one's seen or no one's known about. To step 
out of the shell of who you are day to day and be someone 
different, if you want to be ... just to be somebody totally 
different for four or five minutes is totally excellent."

y Valentine? 

Ahh... Valentine's Day. The scent of roses is in the air, 
couples stroll the Quad, hand in hand, and sweet love is 
all around. 

February 1 4 can be the most romantic day of the year 
or just another cold winter day, depending on the position 
you're in. If you are fortunate enough to be in a good rela- 
tionship around this time of year, the sight of roses and 
teddy bears probably brings a twinkle to your eyes. Those 
of us who aren't so lucky simply brush past the Valentine's 
Day aisle at the grocery store. Fortunately, campus has a 
way of making Valentine's Day weekend fun for everyone. 

Members of the U of I community start planning early 
for Valentine's Day. Biaggi's Ristorante Italiano is a popu- 
lar spot every year. Manager Jim Gould said people begin 
making reservations a month in advance. 

"It is definitely the busiest day of the year but also the 
most fun," he said. 

The chefs come up with creative special just for the 
holiday, but what Gould said he enjoys the most is taking 
part in surprise wedding proposals. 

"The guy will usually come in early in the day to 
explain exactly what he wants to happen, and Biaggi's 
makes sure that everything goes smoothly," he said. 

The Campus Florist on Green Street is also a hot spot 
for Valentine's Day. It has been on campus since the 
1930's, and has continually provided students with that 
extra touch of love for the holiday. Store employee Phyllis 
Valentine said Campus Florists begins Valentine's Day 
preparations in December, but most of the hard work goes 
on the night before because they work with a fresh stock 
of flowers. They arrange a variety of bouquets and pack- 
ages, but red roses remain the most popular. 

For those flying solo on Valentine's Day, all hope is 
not lost. Single students had their choice of things to do 


Clockwise from Top Right: Valentine's Day means crowds and 
long lines for Moonstruck, the Cookie Jar, and the numerous cam-

as well. The annual Greek Bitterness Bash was the perfect 
place for singles to mingle on Valentine's Day weekend. 

Instead of a one-on-one romantic dinner, it was a 
night to hang out with friends, and possibly find a future 

Obviously there was no excuse for singles staying 
home this Valentine's Day. They had just as many options 
as their lovey-dovey fellow U of I students. 

Valentine's Day will always be special for all of the 
romantics out there. What better way to symbolize your 
love for you significant other than setting aside a day to 
show your appreciation? Still, if you are single, you can 
make the day fun by showing some appreciation for your- 
self and having a good time. Use it as a day to celebrate 
single hood instead. Whether you're in your sweetie's arms 
or hanging out with your best friends, keep in mind that 
Valentine's Day is about the spirit of love, and not just 
another Hallmark holiday.

One's college years are meant to be a time of 
if-discovery and, at times, self-indulgence. It is 
due to this fact that often times, one's personal safe- 
ty on campus gets lost in a jumble of papers, exams, 
group projects, and weekend outings. Nonetheless, 
the student body is occasionally served a rude awak- 
ening by a dose of reality, which leads to reflections 
about the potential dangers that still exist on cam- 

One such awakening occurred on Feb. 21, 2004, 
when 20-year-old Nadia Chowdhury was killed in a 
car accident on the corner of Fourth and Green. 
The sophomore in LAS was struck by two cars as 
she was crossing the street to return home to 
Presidential Tower. According to press reports, the 
police have accredited her death to the two drivers 
of both cars, who were reported to have been under 
the influence of alcohol. 

Student reaction to the incident showed reflec- 
tion upon the traffic safety situation on campus. 

"It was a very tragic event," said Jennifer Draudt, 
senior in ALS and resident of Presidential Tower. 
"It also made me think of just how dangerous that 
street can be. I have to cross it every time I want to 
leave my apartment, and I have often thought to 
myself that the intersection was poorly lit and need- 
ed some stop signs to slow down the traffic." 

Kurt Gron, senior in LAS, also placed the 
responsibility on the drivers. 

"I think the problem lies with the drivers and 
speed, not the pedestrians," he said. 

While traffic related accidents pose a definite 
concern for the student body, a far more common 
danger is assault on campus. According to the 
Division of Campus Safety, aggravated assaults and 
batteries are the most reported crimes on campus. 
The vast majority of the attacks also take place 
between the hours of 1 a.m. and 3 a.m.

Bottom, Opposite Page: Certain punches and kicks are more effective when 
it comes to self-defense. Students learn a variety of moves they can use on an attacker. 

In addition, the overwhelming majority of all 
assault victims (estimates are 80 percent) are male. 
However, male student reactions to this statistic do 
not reflect worry about campus safety. 

"I used to feel a little nervous walking around at 
night at the beginning of freshman year because I 
did not know the campus very well," said Dan Fey, 
Senior in Finance. "Now, however, I feel safe 
because the streets are well-lit and I know the area." 

The issue of safety on campus is slightly different 
for the female population. 

"I am not surprised at the high occurrence of this 
crime, but I am surprised at the fact that most of the 
victims are male," said Dawn Cole, junior in engi- 
neering. "Nonetheless, I still feel vulnerable as a 
woman walking alone at night, and I try to take the 
necessary precautions to get home safely." 

Agnes Lo, senior in Electrical and Computer 

Engineering, also said, "I often have to walk alone 
at night in order to get home from Grainger. I find 
myself walking quickly until I get to Green Street, 
where the area is well-lit and there are usually more 
people around." 

The University has addressed the issue of assaults 
on campus through various programs, such as the 
installation of the blue emergency phones in areas 
frequented by students. The phones are designed to 
alert the police to an emergency and the movement 
of the potential victim through the campus area. 

"I think that the phones are a good idea and a 
good step towards addressing the problem, but I 
think that more people need to be made aware of 
their function and locations," Cole said.

Bottom: Larry Vance sweeps the floor at the Art Studios. He is a 

familiar face for many of the students who work there at night. 

Right: Vance's daily duties include sweeping the stairwells. 

Opposite Page: Vance takes a break and surveys his hard work. 

Larry Vance has been a custodian for 10 years. He is in 
charge of the Art Studios in the south part of campus, as well 
as the buildings on Nevada Street. Vance works Sunday 
through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. 

He has a different job to do every day of the week. On 
Tuesdays he cleans the bathrooms and hallways. He usually 
starts his shift at the buildings on Nevada and works his way 
towards the Art Studios his favorite place to work. 

"The best part of my job is being able to see all of the art 
being made," Vance said, "To see how it progresses from 
beginning to end." 

He also has a fondness for the students who work in the 

The art students are a different breed, he said, they're 
very outgoing and proud of what they do. The pride in their 
work is something the students have in common with Vance. 

"We [janitors] sign our name to what we do," Vance said, 
"It makes you feel good to hear 'that floor looks good." 

Sometimes new students ask me if there are any rules 
when they work here at night, Vance said. I just tell them 
not to burn the building down. 

About four years ago, Vance was going to pick up a 
trashcan that had been turned upside down. All of a sudden, 
a student starts hollering at me 'That's my art project! Vance 
said. I said that it was my trash, he said, it turned out that 
the student was taking pictures for one of his pieces. 

The funniest incident he remembers is a hearing a loud 
thud echo through the studios one night. Two students had 

painted one of the walls in the studio black. Then one of 
them covered himself in red paint and ran into the wall, 
while his partner was videotaping it, Vance said. After I 
heard the bang, he said, I saw another janitor come out from 
the section it came from laughing, and he told me what hap- 

Vance served in the Air Force from 1977 to 1981. He 
said he joined because he always liked planes. He took part 
in the Iranian Hostage Crisis, when the U.S. Embassy in 
Teheran was overrun and staff members were taken hostage. 

During his spare time Vance builds train models and 
works on his collection of HO Scale Trains, which he started 
collecting when he was 1 2 years old. He used to have seven 
tables of models in his basement, he said, but lately he's had 
less time to dedicate to his hobby. 

Vance also enjoys watching action, scary and murder 
mystery movies and John Wayne Westerns. His favorites are 
"Memphis Belle," "Anzio" and "Top Gun." He interested in 
movies about wars during the twentieth century. He is also 
interested in military history and the Roman Empire. 

"History shows how cruel people can be to each other," 
he said.

Bill Gates 

he man, the myth, the billionare 

His net worth could make him the 52nd richest country in 
the world, but on Feb. 24th during his lecture at Foellinger 
Auditorium, Bill Gates showed no signs of slowing down. The 
man who dropped out of Harvard during his junior year to revo- 
lutionize the way the world uses computers, stopped by the 
University of Illinois during a three-day, five-campus tour. 

According to Gates, U of I was included on this list due to 
the research being conducted on campus and the fact that 
Microsoft hires more Computer Science graduates from U of I 
than from any other university. 

As the students and other members of the community lucky 
enough to get their hands on free tickets to the event piled into 
Foellinger, the area outside was witness to several students dis- 
tributing free copies of Linux, a open source alternative to the 
Windows operating system which allows for its source code to 
be both read and modified. 

"The Linux presence added to the entire experience because 
it allowed people to not only hear about Microsoft's position, 
but also to hear about the alternatives to Windows," said Agnes 
Lo, senior in Electrical and Computer Engineering, 

Unphased by outside occurrences, Gates was introduced by 
University President, James Stukel, who described Gates as "an 
avid golfer and reader" and a philanthropist who has set up a 
charitable foundation of $24 billion dedicated to global health 
and providing computer technology to public libraries, among 
other things. 

As he took the stage to an enthusiastic round of applause, 
Gates began his presentation by speaking of a time during 
which people did not see computers as tools for personal use, 
but as "machines to be defeated" and of the advancements 
which have allowed the computer to become a personal tool. 

Following this brief glimpse into the past, Gates focused the 
rest of the presentation on the problems facing computer sci- 
ence in present day and on the future of the field. 

One of the problems addressed by Gates was the "digital 
divide," which causes new technologies to be available only to 
wealthier individuals in predominantly wealthier countries. 

Top: Bill Gates speaks to a packed house at Foellinger Auditorium. 

Opposite Page: Audience members had an opportunity 

to ask questions after Gates' presentation. 





"[Ending the digital divide is] a very important goal, particularly 
if you see [access to technology] as almost the same imperative 
as literacy," Gates said. According to Gates, this problem is 
being addressed by introducing computer technologies to devel- 
oping nations and through various programs, such as the 
Microsoft Project, which has introduced over 50,000 computers 
to 18,000 libraries in the United States. 

In addition, Gates also pointed to the decline in the enroll- 
ment of CS programs nationwide and to the lack of diversity 
within the field of CS, especially pertaining to women and 
racial and ethnic minorities. 

"Obviously, we would like the numbers to be 50 percent 
purely diverse, yet the numbers are much more at the 10 or 15 
percent level, and there is a lot that needs to be done about 
that," Gates said. 

The lack of diversity is being addressed by the Millennium 
Scholarship Program created by a grant from Gates and his wife, 
which sponsors undergraduate and graduate education for 
minority students. 

While these problems dealt with the human resources and 
social implication side of CS, Gates named "untrustworthy 
computing", or hacking, as the most severe problem facing the 

software industry. 

Despite these problems, Gates focused his presentation on 
the future of CS and the possibilities the field holds for human 
advancement. He illustrated this potential by presenting the 
newest Microsoft devices, including a portable media player 
capable of playing not only music, but also movies and storing 
photographic images. 

The presentation concluded with a question and answer ses- 
sion, during which interested students were able to ask Gates 
not only about the possibility of small personal loans and per- 
sonal donations of the newest Microsoft devices, but also about 
Microsoft's reputation as not open source, its plans for introduc- 
ing computer technology to developing countries, and the 
future status of job openings in the US. 

" I was impressed with the way Gates defended Microsoft's 
stance on not providing open source software through his expla- 
nation of how commercial software should coexist with open- 
source software and how the Microsoft model encourages inno- 
vation," Lo said. 

Throughout answering the questions, Gates stressed the 
immense opportunities held in the field of CS, as he stressed 
that in the next 10 ro 15 years "CS really will be magical."

it to the hoop 

Halftime of the women's basketball game against 
Wisconsin Feb. 26 saw a promising 30-27 Illini lead over 
the visiting Badgers. Illinois guard Tiffanie Guthrie, for- 
ward Angelina Williams and center Cindy Dallas had 
dominated the first 20 minutes, netting 26 of the Illini's 
points. However, the lead would not hold for long, as a 
five-minute shooting drought to start the second half 
would set the tone for the rest of the game, which would 
eventually end in a 59-53 Wisconsin victory. 

"We came into the game wanting to have more energy 
than they did," Wisconsin Coach Lisa Stone said after her 
team's fourth road win of the season. "We overcame a lot 
today, all the little things. Our team was so motivated." 

Overcoming was a big theme for the Illini, who had a 
lot of games that looked like the Wisconsin match in the 
second half of their season. After starting forward 
Aminata Yanni tore her anterior cruciate ligament in her 
right knee during a narrow 52-51 victory over Ohio State 
Jan. 8, the Illini managed only three wins in their last 15 

While losing one player might not seem to have a 
great impact on a team's overall ability, sophomore for- 
ward Brittney Daugherty said Yanni's absence on the court 
dramatically changed the tempo of Illinois' game. 

"We went from something like 10 fast breaks a game 
to two or three," Daugherty said. "Before, we got a lot of 
points off fast breaks." 

Illinois head coach Theresa Grentz said Yanni's injury 
struck her team's emotions as well as its game play, 
because it meant being down one leader. 

"We played Ohio State and we played as well as we 
had it quite a while," Grentz said. "That was the game 
Aminata got hurt. So when Aminata got hurt we thought 
she was coming back. After that we played Purdue; we 
played them very closely, but we lost. And then we 
learned that Aminata wasn't coming back, and I think 
that was a devastating blow to this group." 

While Yanni was a team standout, she was not alone 
in her leadership. Fellow senior Dallas led the Big Ten in 
rebounding, ranked 17th in scoring and came in 15th in 
blocked shots during the 2003-04 season. 

"Cindy brought massive energy, massive hustle," 
Daugherty said. "She contributed a lot, especially

Dallas recorded her third consecutive year as the Big 
Ten's top rebounder, a feat Grentz said had never before 
been accomplished by a man or a woman. 

Two quiet yet potent assets were junior Guard J ere 
Issenmann and senior Guard Allison Guth, whom Grentz 
credits with encouraging teamwork and hustle both at 
practice and in games. 

"Jere Issenmann with her very team oriented, very 
team spirited attitude, wanted to do everything for the 
team," Grentz said. "She really understands team and was 
a key component in our successes. Allison Guth was a 
walk-on who earned a scholarship and was somebody who 
was about Illinois and what we're about and what we 
needed to do." 



While the Illini boasted individual standouts in a vari- 
ety of areas, Daugherty said their strongest point was a 
consistent team-wide ability to wear-down their oppo- 

"Our team was really good at running," Daugherty 
said. "We were good at running our opponents, wearing 
them out." 

Grentz said while that ability did not come through as 
strongly in offense during the second half of the season, it 
remained noticeable in Illinois' defensive play. 

"It was a very athletic team, and it looked to use that 
athleticism to run, to create opportunities defensively. 
They would get up in people's grill so to speak. We 
weren't a big team and therefore we had to play with a lot 
more heart and a lot more determination to out muscle 
some of our bigger opponents." 

Overall, Grentz said the squad was able to stand up to 
unforeseen challenges and turn them into positive lessons 
they will carry into next year, when at least 10 players are 
expected to return. 

"They're good kids," Grentz said. "They want to get 
this done, they want to make this happen. It was a learn- 
ing season but it was a good season. We didn't have the 
records that we wanted but certainly had the positives."

club Hockey 


skate their 
t^ay to 4 


Illini Hockey ended its regular season by pum- 
meling the University of Minnesota Feb. 28, just 
four days before playing in the national champi- 
onship tournament. The Illini crushed the Gophers 
10-0 in their last home match of the season, led by 
junior forward Brian Coleman, who scored three 
goals against the lower-division Minnesota squad. 
While it was a clean victory for Illinois, it was not 
too disappointing a loss for its opponent. 

"Minnesota is actually Division II for club," said 
junior defender Tom Fullerton. "Their season was 
basically already over. I think they came out just to 
have a good time, knowing we were a better team. 
We were playing well because we wanted to have a 
big win going into nationals." 

Illinois recorded five-point or more margins of 
victory 14 times during the year and ended the sea- 
son 28-8-2. Despite a disappointing fourth place fin- 
ish at the American Collegiate Hockey Association 
Championships, Illinois registered a strong season — 
including a victory over national champions Penn 
State — behind a core of upperclassmen. 

"I think we had a great season on the whole," 
Fullerton said. "We beat the team that ended up 
winning the national championship in the regular 
season. Offensively, we were really talented this 

Illinois finished 14-5-2 in conference to place 
second in the Central State Collegiate Hockey 
League. The one-two punch of a strong offense and 
often-impenetrable goal tending gave Illinois 192 
goals through the season while they allowed just 78. 

"We had two of the best goalies in the nation," 
Fullerton said. 

Freshman defender Mark Myers agreed that if 


Freshman defender Mark Myers agreed that if 
the team had a weakness this year, it was the inex- 
perience of its relatively young defense. 

"We had a young defensive core, which was 
probably not our strong point," Myers said. "We 
couldn't finish under pressure when we needed to." 

Hockey was one of Illinois' best attended and 
most successful sports this year, despite its club sta- 
tus. Fullerton said the design of Illinois' rink creates 
an undeniable home advantage. 

"The thing that's good about our rink is it only 
holds 1,500 to two thousand people," Fullerton said. 
"Our rink is unique because the fans actually sit 
over the ice surface and look down at the rink." 

Fullerton said support for the team is very strong 
among Champaign-Urbana residents unaffiliated 
with the school. 

"There's a pretty good contingent of people who 
come from Champaign," Fullerton said. "Most of 
them don't have kids in school here or on the team, 
they just come to watch." 

Hockey also sports its own fan club, a registered 
student organization called the Harassing Illini. 
The group's mission statement says the Harassing 
Illini's purpose is "to provide the highest quality 
heckling, taunting, harassing, and distraction at any 
attended Illini Hockey Club game." 

"Our objective is first to support our team, but we 
also want to influence the other teams to feel 
uncomfortable coming here," said Harassing Illini 
President Wesley Stickelmaier. "We even have an 
officer whose sole purpose is to do research on the 

other team, find anything they can to heckle them 

Stickelmaier said the club was founded in order 
to develop student support for hockey, which is usu- 
ally less well attended than varsity sports like foot- 
ball and basketball. He said the reward for club 
members comes when opponents are visibly shaken 
during the game. 

"A lot of times we know we're successful because 
we get the other team to acknowledge us," 
Stickelmaier said. "Then we know they're not 
focused on the game." 

Fullerton said the atmosphere created at games is 
an enormous benefit to the team. 

"I think it's a great thing," Fullerton said. "It 
really makes for a home advantage over our oppo- 

The team knows what it needs to improve upon 
while awaiting next season, Myers said. 

"We probably just need to work on defense over- 
all as a team," Myers said. "We just need to keep 
working on that, finishing and coming more pre- 
pared to games, and just being ready to play in big 

Despite this season's disappointing finish, 
Fullerton said the outlook for next year is even 

"Next year we're looking forward to hopefully 
having a good rookie class," he said. "We're looking 
forward to getting better after this year; it's just a 
matter of execution. I know we can compete for the 
national championship next year as well."

restive frnergy... 

Members of 3 Spot gather 

to practice for their 

upcoming show. 


Spicy Clamato is an improvisational comedy group similar 
to the television show "Whose Line is it Anyway?" 3 Spot is a 
dance troupe that performs any and every type of dance. These 
two groups have nothing in common, or so it would seem. 
However, both groups house a very open atmosphere where 
members have the opportunity to let their creative juices flow. 

Joe Hercik, senior in Communications and president of 
Spicy Clamato, has been a part of the group since his freshman 
year. In high school, he participated in the speech team and 
theater. When he came to college, he looked for groups to join. 

"I was looking for a creative outlet," he said. 

Spicy Clamato performs every Tuesday night at the 
Courtyard Cafe in the Illini Union. The group plays different 
games each week where they use each other to create a scene 
and a story line. They also ask the audience for ideas to start 
each game. Their performances include games such as 
"Montage", "The Bucket Game", and "Political Debate." 

Hercik says the group's practices and performances are 
where they "let their ADD run wild." 

Hercik likes the spontaneity and unpredictability of per- 
forming with the group. He also enjoys working off the other 
members and being forced to adapt during games. But most of 
all, he likes to laugh. 

"It's just a lot of fun. I like making people laugh. Sometimes 
I'll leave practice and my face will hurt from laughing," he said. 




Amanda Work, senior in Communications and president of 
3 Spot, joined the dance troupe for many of the same reasons 
Hercik joined Spicy Clamato. Work started dancing at the age 
of five. She took tap, ballet, and jazz dance lessons. In high 
school, she was on a cheerleading/dance squad. Work says 
when she came to college, she wanted to be involved and con- 
tinue dancing. 

"It's just ingrained in my body, in my soul. I just knew I 
would miss it in my life. It's also a stress relief. And it's a cre- 
ative venue too," Work said, "That's my main form of expres- 
sion. It's just a fun way to take your emotions and turn it into 

3 Spot is a dance troupe that performs all types of dance. 
Their performances incorporate everything from modern to 
hip-hop to salsa. The group has two big performances each 
year. Each semester, they have a recital with a collection of 
dances choreographed by different members. Every person can 
contribute to the recital with either dance ideas or songs they 
would like to perform. 

Other members of these groups weren't seeking to find a 
creative outlet but have found performing to be a great experi- 

Jeremy Kanne, sophomore in Engineering, never planned 
on being a part of Spicy Clamato. Kanne intended to audition 
for another campus comedy group, but accidentally went to 
auditions for Spicy Clamato instead. He decided to try out any- 
way and ended up making it into the group. 

Kanne says he is grateful he joined the group because he 
found a hobby he never planned on trying. He's also learned a 
lot about himself. Spicy Clamato taught him you can do any- 
thing if you put your mind to it. But, for Kanne, it's mainly 
about having fun. 

"Making people laugh is one of the best feelings in the 
world," he said.

Monday, Ma 1 was courtesy of the Chicken and Beer 
tour featuring Ludacris with special guest Chingy. 

St. Louis Native Chingy opened the main part of the 
show by appearing incognito on stage in a hooded sweat- 
shirt and performed "Hot and Wet", which got the crowd 
on their feet. The rapper's first album, Jackpot, which 
boasted hits like, "Right Thurr," "One Call Away" and 
"Holidae Inn" ranked 48th on Billboard's Top Albums in 

The crowd whipped itself into frenzy when headliner 
Ludacris appeared onstage after Chingy 's set. He sported 
a custom-made Illinois jersey with Champaign's 217 area 
code on the front and his name on the back. Ludacris, 
originally from Champaign, told the crowd he was happy 
to be back for his first performance in his hometown. 

He started his set with, "Blow it out you're a**," a 
song from his 2003 "Chicken and Beer" album, after 
thanking Chingy for warming up the crowd. 

"What attracted me to Chingy as an artist was that I 
heard his music and it sounded like nothing else I had 
ever heard," Ludacris said on MTV's TRL. "We took a 
risk, put him out there and it turned out to be one of the 
biggest hit songs of this year." 

The success of his third album and a starring role in 
the film, "2 Fast 2 Furious" thrust Ludacris into the spot-

Board of Education 

In his 1951 poem, "Harlem", Langston Hughes 
asked what happens to a dream deferred: "Does it dry 
up / like a raisin in the sun? /. . .or does it explode?" 

These famous words are also the opening to 
Lorianne Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun," a play 
about the situation faced by African-Americans in 
the 1950s, following the Brown v. Board of 
Education ruling. 

This critically acclaimed and award-winning play 
also made its way onto the stage of the Colwell 
Playhouse of Krannert Center for the Performing 
Arts on Mar. 4. The play was presented by the 
University of Illinois Department of Theater, and 
included an all-student cast, with several guest 
appearances. These guest appearances included the 
director, Shirley Basfield Dunlap, an accomplished 
director and former professor of theatre at Morgan 
State University and Iowa State University, among 

In addition, the play also saw the role of Lena 
Younger, the head of the family, played by Cheryl 
Lynn Bruce, an actress who, among other venues, 
has appeared in performances at the Steppenwolf 
Theatre in Chicago. The guest cast was rounded out 
by Crofton Macallister Coleman, a fourth grader 
from Judah Christian School in Champaign, as 
Travis Younger, Lena's precocious grandson.

family. Her son, Walter Lee, wants to start his own 
business in order to break out of the chauffeur job to 
fulfill his potential and provide a better life for his 
family, and Beneatha, Lena's daughter, wants to 
attend medical school and change the world through 
activism in the Civil Rights Movement. 

It was this thematic content of the play that 
attracted Shaki Alliu, junior in FAA, who plays 
Beneatha Younger, to the play. 
"Being in the play was overwhelming, yet satisfying, 

because I knew that we were putting on one of the 
greatest plays ever written," Alliu said. "The over- 
whelming feeling came from the fact that we had to 
do the story justice." 

The play's focus on the Civil Rights Movement 
and its historical setting following the Brown v. 
Board of Education ruling also allowed the play to 
be staged during the University's 50 year anniver- 
sary of the monumental court ruling that dismissed 
the "separate, but equal" clause and desegregated 
American schools. 

"I thought that bringing the play to the universi- 
ty in light of the Brown v. Board of Education 
anniversary was a fantastic idea," said Shakeesha 
Gray, senior in Accountancy. 

The social and historical commentary of the play 
was also received as the most important and under- 
lying theme of the play by other audience members. 
"I thought that all the actors did a good job," said 
Christopher Vaughn, sophomore in pre-journalism. 
"The play was great in tying comedy with the social 
and historical issues associated with the Civil Rights

Drink 'til 
You're jrhA 


At 10 a.m., a troop of girls proudly strutted toward the Quad 
wearing lime green baby tees that said "Irish today...". 
Although they were surrounded by students coming to and from 
class at this early hour, the girls were dressed for a night on the 

Unofficial St. Patrick's Day brought students together from 
all walks of life on Friday, Mar. 5. Everyone seemed interested 
in participating in the joyous occasion. As one student made 
his way down Wright street, he wore a shirt that said, "I'm black 
but I'm gonna drink 'til I'm Irish." 

To accommodate "unofficial" festivities, some bars such as 
CO. Daniel's, opened their doors at 8 a.m. Students showed up 
during these early hours in search of green beer and fun times. 
Many University students, Irish or not, found themselves skip- 
ping class to get into the spirit of the holiday. 

However, not all students ditched class for this special day. 
Some headed straight to bars after class still carrying their 
books, bags and calculators. 

To further commemorate this day, the Daily Illini generously 
passed out free green hats near the quad. This version of a St. 
Patrick's celebration definitely contrasts the elementary school 
days when students simply colored leprechauns and traced sham- 
rocks onto green construction paper. 

Nonetheless, the real celebration began around noon when 
lengthy lines formed outside several bars. On any ordinary day,

campus bars would be virtually empty around lunchtime. But on 
Unofficial St. Patrick's Day, hoards of students waited in a long, 
green lines. 

Dressed in green, Jason Eckstein, junior in LAS, waited in 
line outside of CO. 's at 12:10 p.m. Although Eckstein is 22 
years old, this year was the first time he celebrated Unofficial. 
He decided to celebrate this year because he wanted to join in 
the "unofficial" fun. 

"It's a good reason to get drunk," he said. 

By 12:30 p.m., C.O.'s was packed with dancing students, 
some sipping green beer from plastic cups and others chugging 
the green concoction from full pitchers. 

Students certainly enjoyed themselves as they continued 
flooding into bars until the wee hours of the night. Police added 
to the celebration by issuing drinking tickets to several dozen 
underage drinkers, but this barely dampened the spirits of bar 

As Unofficial came to a close, partygoers at Clybourne's 
joined a rather jovial student dressed as a leprechaun to shake 
their tail feather to non-Irish, R&B hits. 

The calm atmosphere of campus town the following day 
proved that Unofficial St. Patrick's day this year was one that 
some people will remember... and some people won't.

raying the 


"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I 
took the one less traveled by, and that has made 
all the difference." 

Wise words once written by poet Robert Frost, 
and followed by Illinois softball seniors. This class 
of seniors will be the first to have rounded the 
bases with the program; they started the program 
as freshmen and are handing it over as seniors. 

Illinois Softball's first class started out as 15 
rosy-cheeked freshman and widdled itself down to 
nine mature seniors who at one point, chose not 
to play follow the leader, but instead to become 
the leaders. 

When these nine athletes were in high school 
and narrowing down their list of schools to attend, 
they did not pick the perennial softball powers, 
but instead chose to attend a school without an 
already established program. 

"When recruiting them, we had no team for 
them to meet, we didn't even have a field built 
yet," said Head Coach Terri Sullivan. 

The girls came in with purpose they were going 
to start the program. 

"As freshman, it was a unique opportunity. We 
were going to be part of a team that didn't even 
exist yet," graduating senior Lindsey Hamma said. 
'Our freshman motto was "building from the 

ground up," and looking back on it, that is exactly 
what we did. Being able to walk into something 
like that made my decision to come to Illinois 
pretty easy." 

They intended on winning, and becoming 
competitive quickly, but they also knew celebrat- 
ing a national championship was far-fetched. 

Instead, they planned to celebrate a national 
championship in the future, with full understand- 
ing that they were on the ground floor of building 
something great. 

"They really layed the foundation for years to 
come," Sullivan said. "They were not just talent- 
ed, but they were coachable, they were dedicated, 
they were unselfish and always had great enthusi- 
asm. Great things were done with this program 
and it is because of them." 

From the program's conception, the team has 
made not only steady improvements, but has 
improved exponentially. 

"Physically, we are much stronger," graduating 
senior Janna Sartini said. "That is a tribute to a 
lot work with conditioning and in the weight 
room. As freshmen, we had to grow up fast. We 
are now smarter and older, our maturity has 
increased above and beyond beliefs, and our team 
is better than I had ever thought possible."

The senior class stretches out at the beginning 
of practice and gazes over the field, seemingly as 
half competitive athlete and half proud parent. 
Along with the coaching staff, the program is their 
child who has just turned four. They were there at 
the beginning, although the wins and losses will 
come and go, records will be broken and then later 
broken again, but the picture of the first team to 
play Illinois softball has carved their names into 
the edifice of time. The first hit at Eichelberger 
Field will always belong to Lindsey Hamma. The 
first triple will always belong to Erin Jones. The 
first RBI belongs to Katie O'Connell. The first 
home run will always be Sarah Baumgartner's, and 
the First Pitch was thrown by Amanda Fortune. 

"I will never forget our first game on 
Eichelberger Field," Hamma said. "From the first 
hit, to the first bunt to the first home run, we built 
tradition. Any little silly thing we did will be a tra- 
dition, just because at one time, we thought it was 
fun. No matter how stupid it might be, it is part of 
Illinois history." 

They never backed down from the challenges 
that were presented, and it has nothing to do with

talent. That was courage and the vision of the 
coaching staff to lead them in the right direction. 

"Their love of the University is special," 
Sullivan said. "They work so hard and they spread 
that everywhere they go. They started the reputa- 
tion we know we possess, we are a team that works 
hard and wins the right way. Illinois is respectable 
on and off the field, and it's because of them. 
They have built the team and this makes this year 
extra special." 

At the moment, Illinois is moving up in the 
nation and working to become one of the elite 
programs in the country. From not having a field 
to play on to having a bright future, these seniors 
have climbed the ladder. 

The program can go nowhere but up," Sartini 
said. "To be a little boastful, we layed a pretty 
good foundation for teams to come. Standards 
have been set really high and the bar will be set 
higher and higher, and this program is going places 
for some time to come."

Janna Crawford in action. 

If you are a real University of Illinois basketball 
fan, you should take note of two great teams you 
might have overlooked. The Men's and Women's 
Wheelchair Basketball teams are the definition of 
success on the court. Both have won national 
recognition with a combination of high rankings 
and back-to-back championships. In 56 years, the 
University of Illinois Wheelchair Basketball pro- 
gram boasts 24 national titles. 

The University Men's and Women's 
Wheelchair basketball teams have a long tradition 
of success. Coach Mike Frogley proudly stated that 
since the program began in the 1950s, it has main- 
tained one of the best records of any sport on cam- 

Their success continues today, and Frogley 
coaches both teams. 

"I never thought 1 1 years ago I would be in this 
position," he said. "I began as an interim coach, 
and one thing led to another." 

It is fortunate for Illinois that Frogley's path led 
him here. This year, the Woman's Wheelchair 
Basketball team won their third straight national 
title. Frogley remembers the championship game 
this season as truly memorable. After a less than 
perfect performance in their previous semi-finals 
game, the women's team put on one of their best 
performances ever. They had outstanding defense 
against the Texas Heat, taking over 20 turnovers 
and holding the Texas team to 29 points. 

Janna Crawford, center and co-captain of the 
women's team says the key to their success is dedi- 
cation, sacrifice, and attention to detail. 

"I've been an athlete all my life and was devas- 
tated when my knee-injury stopped me from play- 
ing able-bodied basketball," she said. "I didn't want 
to give up sports for good and I was glad to find out 
that I had the option of playing wheelchair basket- 

The Men's Wheelchair Basketball team receives 
national attention as well. In the past three sea- 
sons, they placed third in the country. Frogley 
describes them as a developing team with develop- 
ing players. The team continues to improve with 
each season. Center Jeff Townsend said their 
achievement is due to the athletic talent of the 
team members. 

" A lot of the players come from the junior 
league and are enthusiastic to come play at U of I," 
he said. "Our coach is known as one of the best in 
the world." 

This year, the U of I Men's Wheelchair basket- 
ball team accomplished an impossible feat. In the 


second game this season, they managed to defeat the 
Milwaukee Wheelchait Bucks, a team composed of 
experienced, semi-professional players. They became 
the first collegiate team to do so. With these kinds 
of victories, they will soon be on their way to a 
national title. 

Frogley believes the best thing about his job is 
the opportunity to watch the players grow and 
develop, as students and as athletes. 

"There is nothing better than to watch a young 
people begin to believe in themselves," he said. 

Despite the U of I Wheelchair Basketball teams' 
history of success, it has been a tough road. There 
are many misconceptions about the sport. It is often 
perceived as recreational rather than a serious sport. 
Frogley emphasizes wheelchair basketball players are 
not "special athletes." They get up at six in the 
morning to practice five to six days a week, from 
weight-training to watching game videos for prepa- 

"Some people don't realize the level of athleti-

cism and physical activity involved in every game," 
Townsend said. "The first time they come to a 
game, they may be surprised to see someone get 
pushed or knocked out of a wheelchair." 

Wheelchair Basketball teams are not funded by 
the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (DIA). 
Frogley explained the program does not have the 
money to offer athletic scholarships so when he 
recruits, he has to convince prospective players U 
of I is the place for them. 

"Despite the fame and national recognition the 
Wheelchair Basketball teams have brought to the 
University, it often goes unnoticed in our own 
community," Crawford said. 

She and several other members of her team are 
members of the USA Women's Wheelchair 
Basketball team, which ranks second in the world. 

"It is one," Coach Frogley says, "that all stu- 
dents should be able to take pride in."

Young Minds 

for the Future 

The annual Engineering Open House is one of 
the biggest events at the University of Illinois. 
March 12 and 13 saw hundreds of people from all 
over invade the Engineering campus to see what 
new and fun on the North Quad. The attendees 
ranged from elementary school students to parents 
and faculty. 

The EOH's purpose is to better acquaint both 
students from other colleges, as well as the general 
public with the goals and accomplishments of the 
College of Engineering. It succeeds in doing just 

The Engineering Open House has a long his- 
tory at U of I. The first EOH was held on campus 
in the 1920s and was bi-annual, but it became 
such a hit over the years that, in the 1950s, it 
became an annual event. Since then, thousands 
of inquiring minds have flocked to the University 





EOH 2004 

of Illinois to witness what its renowned College of 
Engineering has to offer. 

"EOH allows engineering to he put on display to 
prospective students," siad Phil Lachman, senior in engi- 
neering. "Basically you have student groups who put 
together demonstrations and competitions." 

Jenny Mason is president of the U of I Engineering 
Advocates, who participated in the event this year. The 
Engineering Advocates is an organization dedicated to 
promoting interest in the field, especially among young 

"Engineering Advocates did participate in the 
Engineering Open House this year, and we look forward 
to participating next year," Mason said. 

She said it is a great opportunity for her organization 
to network with teachers and students, and plan for 
future visits to their classrooms. 

The Engineering Open House puts together presenta- 
tions and demonstrations that appeal to audiences young 
and old. Mason said the event allows attendees, "to see 
both fun and practical applications of engineering in 
addition to cutting-edge technology." 

Her booth performed Lego demonstrations to teach 
kids the fundamentals of engineering. Lego's are a great 
tool because, like engineering, basic elements come 
together to create something far more complex. 

However, the highlight of the open house was visit 
from Jerry Sanders, alumnus and founder of AMD, a 
leading designer and producer of computer processors 
and accessories. Sanders was in town to present 
Professor Wen-mei Hwu with an endowed chair in 
Electrical and Computer Engineering. 

"It is a privilege to further the educational excellence 
of my alma mater, honoring one of the nation's best edu- 
cators, and creating a lasting legacy of innovation," 
Sanders said.

Campus flips Women's 

or Gymnastics 


In the past few years, the women's gymnastics 
team has made giant strides towards making their 
program elite, bringing in some of the top talent in 
the nation. Together with the coaching staff, the 
upperclassman have worked as hard as they could, as 
well as helping younger team members to make sure 
they put together the best meet possible. 

"It's always exciting competing," Kara 
Kapernekes, junior captain, said. "And each year 
we get a different group of girls coming in. This 
year we had a great addition to our team. Our three 
freshman added so much enthusiasm and determina- 
tion, which made it so fun to compete." 

Coach Bob Starkell noticed this development 
and expects big things from his team. This year his 
team made for exciting matches. They were com- 
petitive in meets, and in practice with each-other. 

"I think a lot of what we do as college gymnasts 
is inspire young athletes," Ashley Williams, junior 
captain, said. "I think that it is one of the best 
opportunities an athlete can have in their career. It 
is very rewarding to know that all of our hard work- 
ing habits will be passed on to a younger generation 
and continue the spirit of athletics, I love, the fact 
that I get to perform the sport I love as well as moti- 
vate the gymnasts and other athletes of the future to 
achieve their dreams. It's an amazing feeling." 

The upperclassmen are out to prove they are just 
as talented as the rest, but in the process, they do 
what is best for the team in making them better as a 
whole. With a lone senior, Lindsay Ransom, the 
leadership falls on many athletes. 

"I would just like to think of myself as a friend, 
gymnast, and coach," Kapernekes said. "I really try 
to get across the message how easy it actually is to 
work extremely hard at one thing and to have fun 
with it too. I hope I had an impact on the girls, 
because that was one of my main goals. By the end 
of the year, those girls became are family." 

Illinois sent two girls to the National 
Championship this year. Junior Ashley Williams 
went after the all-around crown, while freshman 
Cara Pomeroy competed on the uneven bars. 
Williams has been an all-around solid performer for 

the Illini all season and she was one of pillars for 
the team that could be used as a model for things to 
come, while Pomeroy, a freshman from Canada, 
scored Illinois' first ever "perfect 10" during region - 

"The highlight of my season is just the fact that 
University of Illinois was at regional championships 
this year," Williams said. "The most exciting 
moment of it though was when one of our team- 
mates (Cara Pomeroy) scored a perfect 10." 

"I never expected to score a perfect 10," 
Pomeroy said. "I didn't even expect to make 
nationals on bars. I am so happy that I get to enjoy 
this experience with Ashley Williams." 

Freshman Danye Botterman specialized in the 
floor routine, bars and vault this past season. 

"Our team this year broke a ton of records," 

Clockwise from far left: The uneven bars were a strong event for lllini 
Gymnasts this year. The balance beam was another good event for the 
lllini women.

Botterman said. "We made it to regionals for the 
first time in five years, and we had individuals make 
it to nationals for the first time in a long, long time, 
so the hard work paid off." 

One of the reasons Illinois succeeded was the 
willingness of the whole team to give it their all. 
The tight knit group was not brought down by a 
weakest link, because there wasn't one to be found. 
The upperclassmen showed the leadership needed 
from day one. 

"Our freshmen this year came in highly motivat- 
ed and ready to succeed," Williams said. "There 
wasn't much we needed to do in that aspect. As co- 
captains, Kara and I just tried to make sure that our 
team was all on the same page in terms of our goals 
and the hard work it was going to take to obtain 
them. Once we reached this point we knew it was 
going to be a good year." 

The team expects their record to only get better. 
They lose one senior, but gain three more talented 
freshmen for next season. 

"The feeling around the school is that our pro- 
gram is definitely on the "ups," Kapernekes said. 
"This year has shown us what potential we have. 
We peaked fairly late in the season, so this just 
shows us what we can do early on next season. I 
think we are all excited to show people what Illinois 
Gymnastics is going to be about in the near future." 

Looking to next year, the lllini hope to carry 
over some of the success from this year, but also 
realize the importance of never settling. 

"We have to keep working hard so we can be 
even better in the years to come," Pomeroy said.

^/l Any in the tile oL.. 

a Fraternity & 
Sorority President 

Andrea Alveraz as she relaxes 
from her many commitments. 



A few blocks from busy Lincoln Avenue, the Delta Zeta 
sorotity house is a neat, quaint place 55 girls call home. 

But inside, it's chaos for sorority president Andrea 

Everyday, e-mails overflow her mailbox — even though 
she checks them almost every hour. 

"It's like managing a small business," Alvarez said of her 
duties in the sorority. 

Alvarez, sophomore in LAS, decided to become presi- 
dent after a Delta Zeta alumni told her she should take on 
the role. The year-long role of president is both demanding 
and gratifying for Alvarez. 

"It follows me everywhere," she said. 

Despite 18 hours of difficult courses in preparation for 
law school and volunteering at the historical society, 
Alvarez still finds time for her role as president. 

"This can be a 24-hour job if you let it be," she said. 

Alvarez usually spends seven hours on school work and 
dedicates the rest of her day to managing the 150-member 

For example, Alvarez said she is likely to stay up and 
worry about other members getting home safely from bars or 
fraternity parties. She is also the one to answer calls from 
members if there is no more cereal in the kitchen. She is 
amused when members complain about having Cocoa Puffs 
instead of Reese's Puffs available for breakfast. She does get 
frustrated, but feels the good definitely outweighs the bad. 

In times of trouble, Alvarez feels that she can count on 
every member to act as a shoulder to cry on. 

"We're always there for each other," she said. 

On Wednesdays, the house prepares dinner for different 
fraternities to promote better relations between the organi- 
zations. Delta Zeta also raised $1,200 for Relay for Life, and 
often participates in various philanthropy projects through- 
out the year. 

Alvarez is the external voice of the sorority and the 
main contact for events, alumni, and the national organiza- 
tion. Through her position as president, she learns about 
time management and hard work — a picture of the members 
on her computer reflects her dedication. Making changes 
that affect future members is her favorite part of her posi- 
tion as president. 

"I have the power to change things for the better," 
Alvarez said. "Our ritual shapes who we are." 


Ryan Griffin vacuums his room everyday. 

But it's not just any room. Griffin lives in room number 
one, the Consul Suite of the Sigma Chi Fraternity house 

It's the most spacious room in the house, and currently 
equipped with videogames, a fax machine, stereo equipment 
and the latest edition of UI Booze News. A glass magazine 
table and a white candle in a black candleholder add the 
finishing touch. 

Griffin gets the room because he's the president. 

That's not all he gets. Griffin also gets a $1,000 scholar- 
ship from the fraternity for taking on the demanding posi- 

He admits that most of his day is spent answering e- 
mails, and acting as an external voice of the fraternity. He 
helped organize the reunion visit for the 1953 class of Sigma 
Chi, and spent part of the afternoon grading Greek Oscar 
Awards with other members of the Interfraternity Council. 

With only 12 hours of courses this semester, Griffin, a

junior in business, has more time to dedicate to his 
role as president. He says living in the more than 
ninety-year-old house is often fun. 

"It's like a big dorm where everyone knows each 
other," he said. 

In addition to being president, Griffin takes care of 
a disabled Sigma Chi alumnus. Today, Griffin is meet- 
ing him at Whitehorse to celebrate his birthday. 

"The ties (the fraternity) opened for me are unbe- 
lievable," Griffin said. 

Tackling the job of Sigma Chi president requires a 
great amount of organization — a characteristic Griffin 
says he has. Besides vacuuming everyday, and having 
an alphabetized CD and DVD collection (with an 
index of what movies he has on the back cover), 
Griffin is able to balance his duties as president. 

"By the time you learn the ropes, it's almost over," 
he said about the semester-long term. 

Even though his presidency is coming to an end, 
Griffin still takes his role very seriously. 

"This works out to be a full-time job," he said.

i Spring into 


While most of the student body headed out of town to 
start spring break, the U of I men's gymnastics team head- 
ed to Huff Hall on Mar. 19 to compete for the Big Ten 
Conference Championship Title. The Friday competition 
constituted the first day of a two-day meet, with the team 
competition taking place on Friday, and individual sec- 
tions taking place the following day. 

Huff Hall was filled with sounds of encouragement and 
applause as athlete after athlete seemed to defy gravity on 
the pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars, high bar, and 
during the floor exercises. The Illini competed against 
Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio State, and Penn State. 

"It was really exciting to see the team compete at 
home in such an important competition, and to see the 
encouragement they received from all the fans," said 
junior Dawn Cole, a spectator at the event. 

Although they took sixth place in 2003, the Illini 
entered this year's competition with the No. 1 ranking. 
The first two events placed the Illini into the number five 
spot; they grabbed the lead after the fourth rotation and

held onto it to win the championship title by the end of 
the night. 

"We started off with two rough events and really 
turned the competition around in the end for a win," said 
sophomore Justin Spring. 

Spring's performance proved integral to the Illini's suc- 
cess. As a sophomore All-American, Spring took second 
in the all-around competition. 

"I was happy with the way the day turned out," Spring 
said, "Taking second is just going to motivate me to work 
harder to prepare for the NCAA Championship." 

He was also the individual conference champion for 


oor exercise. 

Spring's performance was aided by his teammates, 
specially by the Illini capture of the first, second, and 
aird place in the pommel horse competition by junior 
en Newman, senior Bob Rogers, and sophomore Ted 
town. Newman's win secured his conference title in

aint The Hall 


When Big Ten leader Michigan State arrived at Assembly Hall the 
night of Feb. 10, neither team expected the defeat that would hang over 
the Spartans' heads when the night was done, both coaches would later 
agree. Despite controlling the scoreboard early in the game, MSU fell 
victim to a strong Illini defense and a sea of orange. 

Illinois relied on defense and some standout offensive plays by junior 
guard Luther Head as they routed the Spartans 75-51. The 24-point 
margin was the eleventh home victory of the season for Illini coach 
Bruce Weber's squad and MSU's worst loss — numerically — of the year. 

"It's a shame that such an important game for both teams had to be 
so one sided," Michigan State Coach Tom Izzo said at a post-game press 
conference. "I give Bruce a lot of credit. Those guys were playing hard 
and tough and we didn't." 

Roger Powell makes a slam dunk. 







Big Ten 


Deron Williams drives the ball to the net. 


Key for the Illini was the one-two punch of Head and 
sophomore forward James Augustine, who combined for 33 
points. Head tied a career-high of five 3-pointers and acces- 
sorized with four rebounds and four assists. 

"Luther's always hitting shots," said Deron Williams, 
sophomore guard for the Illini. "When he's not hitting great 
shots, he's opening up a lot of things for us." 

Augustine's game-high eleven rebounds and crowd-pleas- 
ing three-point-play with 58 seconds to go in the first half 
electrified the team, Weber said, and brought the sold-out 
crowd of 16,618 to its feet. 

"He acted like he was 6' 10" instead of acting like he was 
6'5"," Weber said of the nearly seven-foot Augustine. "It's 
paid off and he's got to keep doing that." 

Despite some legal and physical trouble early in the year, 
the Illini spent the 2003-2004 season rolling out victory after 
victory, in a manner uncommon among young squads with 
first-year coaches. One of the most impressive factors in the 
team's success was its holistic approach to the game — no sin- 
gle player carried the team throughout the season, although 
individual games saw individual team members stand apart 
from the squad. 

"It seems like it's different every game," Weber said of the 
team's on-court leadership. "I think they've gotten to that 
point where they realize how important it is. They've lost 
themselves to the team." 

Camaraderie was not the only thing that drove the Illini 
to a winning regular season. A tough defense and effective 
motion offense were key points in getting the team some 
much-needed tallies in the "win" column. 

"A lot of teams play good defense," Weber said. "But it 
seems like we have enough to sustain it." 

Weber's squad has enough youth to sustain them for the 
next few years, with seven players in their freshman or sopho- 
more seasons. According to sophomore guard Deron 
Williams, who led the Big Ten in assists following the MSU 

game, the team developed a motivating drive that propelled 
them as the post-season approached. 

"I'm feeling it now," Williams said. "I'm playing the type 
of game I knew I could play this year. I see the big picture." 

Center Nick Smith attributed the ability of each team 
member to step up his play when needed to the team's 
strength under the basket. 

"I've done a pretty good job," Smith said. "I've been pretty 
inconsistent, but I've had some good games. We've had other 
guys do so well this year I haven't had to do it." 

When the Illini lose senior guard Jerrance Howard to 
graduation, they will part with an emotional leader who 
Williams said will be tough to replace. 

"Everyday in practice he battles and competes," Williams 
;aid of the team's sole graduate. "He shows us how to be a 
eader. Without him, it will change the environment, change 
!:he team. He's the heart of this team." 

But the future looks optimistic for the youthful squad, 
'■■•inishing the season with a 12-1 home record and going 
indefeated in February, Weber said the horizon appeared 

"You've got to feel good about our team now," Weber said. 
They're playing like I would like them to play."

The mini squad have brains and brawn 

The University of Illinois Women's Tennis team has 
had an exciting year. In the 2003-2004 season, they were 
the number one seed in the Big Ten with several national- 
ly top-ranked players. They blew past the some of the best 
teams in the country and had an impressive winning 
streak on their way to the NCAA finals. With hard work 
and dedication, the University of Illinois Women's Tennis 
Team is one of the best representations of Illinois athleti- 
cism and pride. . 

Women's Tennis was not always the athletic power- 
house it is today. In 1998, they Women's team finished its 
season with an 8-13 record. Looking for a change, the 
Athletic Department hired Coach Sajoy Lama. Lama was 
a top-ranked player in Nepal and a successful college 
coach. His previous experience as a player and coach have 
made a remarkable difference. Since Lama came to the 
University, the Women's Tennis team has steadily 
improved. As of early April, the team was ranked 17th in 
the nation, according to the Intercollegiate Tennis 
Association. Seniors Jennifer McGaffigan and Tiffany 
Eklov led the way, but each player has contributed a great 
deal to the team's success. 

In March, the Big Ten Conference named freshman 
Emily Wang Player of the Week. The Women's Tennis 
team dominates in both singles and doubles matches. 
Illinois players continue to break the records of former 
University of Illinois tennis greats. In a matter of six 
years, the University of Illinois Women's Tennis Team has 
emerged as one of the top collegiate teams in the country. 

The team sets high standards for themselves, both on 
and off the court. Not only are they some of the best play- 
ers in the league, but some of the best students in the 
league. In 2003, the Women's Tennis team was named to 
the ITA's All-Academic Teams list, with the team GPA 
above a 3.2. 

The team definitely has more success to come. 
Although they will be losing some valuable seniors, they 
have several young stars who will carry the team through 
upcoming seasons. Freshmen and sophomores Wang, 
Knue, Jarosz, and Akritas will undoubtedly learn from the 
older players and become even better at their sport.

build trust. 


It's often said that one's life should never be all 
work and no play. The same is said about one's 
time at college; "Work hard, but remember to 
have some fun, too". But as many students find 
out during their college careers, there is a way to 
combine meaningful work and making a differ- 
ence with fun and relaxation. As many are bound 
to attest, combining these two aspects is possible 
through the many volunteer opportunities avail- 
able at the University through various Registered 
Student Organizations, and within the 
Champaign-Urbana community. 

One of the largest and most established 
Registered Student Organizations focused on vol- 
unteering is Alpha Phi Omega. Established in 
1932, this co-ed service fraternity devotes itself to 
improving the local community, all while provid- 
ing its members with opportunities to build lead- 
ership skills and lasting friendships. These oppor- 
tunities lead the members of the largest fraternity 
in the country to volunteer more than 3,000 
hours every semester on projects ranging from the 
TIMES Center, Adopt-a-Highway, the YMCA, 
and the Crisis Nursery, among others. 

"I joined APO at St. Louis University and 
continued my involvement with the organization 
when I transferred to the U of I because it allowed 
me to enjoy myself while helping out my commu- 
nity," said Jennifer Draudt, senior in ALS 





Another service organization which has managed to 
establish collaborative ties with APO is Alternative 
Spring Break, '"his service organization is centered on 
expanding social awareness through interaction with 

)mmunities from different parts of the 
country and of the world. This interaction takes place 
in the form of week-long trips to various locations dur- 
ing which the students take part in discussions and 
community service projects. The trips take place dur- 
ing all academic breaks in the fall, winter and spring, 
with spring break 2004 branching out to 1 7 different 
location sites. 

The community outreach efforts illustrated by APO 
and ASB are also present in the University branch of 
the Habitat for Humanity. This organization is com- 
mitted to ending poverty and homelessness around the 
world "through the building and renovation of older 
homes, in order to erase substandard living conditions 
for their inhabitants. 

"The best thing about the organization is that it 
brings together the students and the community, and 


allows the students to be exposed to the problems 
that exist outside the University setting," said 
Mary Pearson, Habitat for Humanity vice president 
and junior in LAS. 

While many RSOs are making a difference in 
the Champaign-Urbana community, volunteering 
is certainly not limited to University Students. 
One of the largest service organizations for local 
area high school students is Operation Snowball, a 
state-wide program focusing on providing teens 
with the information and support necessary for 
making wise decisions in regards to alcohol and 
other drugs. The program name stems from the 
idea that a positive impact on one individual leads 
to a positive impact on another individual, eventu- 
ally leading to "a community of change". This 
community of change is accomplished by the 

U of I Students volunteer 

to run the Snowball retreat 

where they aid local high 

school students in solving 

issues or drugs, alcohol 

and trust. 

~S'X A 

weekly, peer-facilitated meetings and biannual retreats 
that form the core of the Operation Snowball program 
and focus on topics such as communication, family 
dynamics and substance abuse education. 

As is evident from these volunteering opportuni- 
ties, it is not very difficult to combine fun with worth- 
while results in the Champaign-Urbana community.

Attending a men's basketball game means 
watching the Orange Krush cheer, wave their 
arms, and jump up and down in hopes of dis- 
tracting opposing teams as much as possible. 
Football games are known for capacity crowds at 
Memorial Stadium chanting I-L-L-I-N-I back 
and forth across the field. However, golf tourna- 
ments, silent respect for the opponent and cour- 
teous clapping are the protocol. 

The men's golf team earned its share of 
applause in the 2003-04 season, proving its abili- 
ty to compete against some of the top teams in 
the nation. While the Illini have not recorded 
the same number of first-place finishes they 
boasted last season, they have been finishing 
among the top teams all year. 

"Our competition has been better this year, as 
far as tournaments go," golfer Patrick Nagle said. 
"The tournaments we're playing in are better, 
better teams are there." 

The Illini had earned five top-five finishes 
coming into the Boilermaker Invitational at 
Purdue University April 10. When the second of 
three rounds of the tournament had completed, 
Illinois was fifth in the 18-team field, with Nagle 




in sixth place at three under par. However, noth- 
ing went quite as smoothly on the second day of 
action, however, and the entire team slipped 
down to a seventh place finish. 

"We played reasonably well, until the last day 
when we just fell apart," Nagle said. "We put our- 
selves in a position to finish strong and we just 

Nagle said that while the weak showing was 
disappointing, the team benefited from seeing the 

"The main reason we went to play there was 
because the regional tournament is there," Nagle 

Golf teams take five team members to each 
tournament, putting the eight team-members in 
constant competition over who will go. While 
they are small in comparison to other sports 
teams, golfer Jordan Carpenter said the group is a 
strong one. 

"Everyone has a chance of going to every 
tournament," Carpenter said. "Our eight guys are 
very fundamentally sound, every one of them has 

a possibility of going low and qualifying for any 

That makes it easier on the team when one 
athlete's game is sub par, Carpenter said. 

"Everyone knows that everyone is capable of 
beating any team any day of the week," he said. 

Nagle agrees that no one athlete has carried 
the team throughout the season. 

"If someone is having an off week, someone 
else can step into that spot," Nagle said. "We 
don't have to go in short handed. I don't know if 
a lot of teams have that, but it's fun to be that 
competitive, it makes you a better player." 

One of the biggest challenges the team faces 
is not playing during the winter months, when 
teams from other climates can continue to prac- 

"We'll go to Florida for spring break," Nagle 
said. "It's nice to get away from golf and just be a 
student for a couple of months, but it's tough to 
go out there and compete against teams like 
Florida and Georgia who've been playing [during 

The team still finds ways to work on their 
games, even when the temperatures dip below 

"When winter starts, we usually hit balls at 
least three days a week indoors," Carpenter said. 
"Golf is such a fundamentals game, it's very key 
for us to practice even hitting, chipping." 

Nagle said that while transitioning back to 
the outdoors in the spring is a challenge, the 
team always manages to succeed at just the right 

"We've always kind of struggled in the early 
spring, but we can definitely contend for the 
conference title," he said. "All our games are get- 
ting better at the right time."

Human Sexuality 

Credit: 2 hours.

Right: Students learn how to put 

on a condom correctly using a

McKinley demonstration in 

Human Sexuality. 

In class, Josh Banach, junior in Business, gave a presenta- 
tion on anal sex toys. He showed pictures of anal butt plugs, 
an anal douche and a toy called the Anal Invader. 

For Banach, the project was an enlightening experience. 

"I was surprised people think of these things, let alone 
buy them," he said. 

Other students spoke about dildos, bondage gear, sex 
games and harnesses as part of a lecture devoted to sex toys. 
This is not your average general education class; this is 
Human Sexuality. 

Human Sexuality is offered by the Community Health 
department, and the class talks about sexuality in its broad- 
est forms. Topics covered range from anatomy to contracep- 
tives to atypical sexual behavior. 

Lisabeth Searing, a Community Health lecturer, says the 
class uses a lot of unusual material as mediums to talk about 
different topics related to the class. Searing once used a 
South Park episode to discuss sex education in middle 
school and high school. She's also used clips from the MTV 
program "Sex In The '90s" to discuss how American culture 
has changed in respect to diversity and acceptance. 

She would like to work in Blind Date and Elimidate into 
a lecture. She wants to use the shows to discuss gender 

With about 1,000 students enrolled in the class each 
semester, Human Sexuality is pretty popular. Most students 
enjoy the material and the presentation. 

In class, freshman in LAS Christin Connolly looked at 
pornography. The class tried to figure out the difference 
between porn, erotica, and obscenity by looking through dif- 
ferent magazines. They also made sex positions by using pipe 
cleaners. Connolly likes the class because it's different from 
most of her lecture-based schedule. 

(CHLTH 206) Emphasized the behav- 
ioral cupecU of human sexuality. Topics 
include: birth control; prenatal care y preg- 
nancy and childbirth; jex roles; premarital 
sex; lifedtyled; marriage and divorce. 

"It's hands on," she said. "Something you would be 
embarrassed about, you do as an activity and it just makes 
you so much more comfortable and able to talk about it." 

Though students find the class fun, it does cover some 
serious topics. In many lectures a student panel from 
Pride, a gay/lesbian group on campus, spoke to classes 
about discrimination and stereotypes. 

Becky Rice, freshman in LAS, said she really enjoyed 
hearing the members of Pride speak. Rice, who is from a 
small town, said it was interesting to see their perspective 
and how homosexuality is viewed on campus as opposed 
to at home. 

Another guest speaker talked about female genitalia 
mutilation. Searing feels the topic is important because it 
is usually overlooked. She says she's received really good 
response from the lecture. In an anonymous comment, a 
male student wrote that during the presentation he tried 
really hard not to cry because he didn't want his friends 
to see. 

Other serious topics discussed include rape, domestic 
violence, and sexually transmitted diseases. But for the 
most part the class is aimed to be informative yet fun at 
the same time. 

"It's just a fun class to take . . . and I hope that I can 
be entertaining and informative," Searing said. 

Freshman in business Jeff Dvorak summed up most 
students feelings about the class. He said the class is 
goofy, interactive, and is just a lot of fun. 

"It's one of the most interesting Gen Eds," he said. 
"And it applies to almost everyone."

f\ever really out 

Illini baseball rebounded from a painful 5-4 loss to Western 
Michigan the day before as they turned around and triumphed 
over the Broncos, winning 9-8 Apr. 7. In just their second 
home game of the season, the Illini squad rallied behind back- 
to-back singles in the second inning and clinched the game 
with three runs in the bottom of the seventh. 

"Coming off a loss like that on Tuesday, we knew Michigan 
State was the next weekend, and we knew we had to right the 
ship," senior catcher Trevor Frederickson said. "Any time you're 
in a game and you're down, coming back and winning give you 
boost; it's like you're able to come back, you're never really 

The Illini struggled to find their game early in the season, 
winning just seven of their first 13 games. While its record was 
less-than-stellar, Frederickson said the team's tough opening 
schedule accounted for much of the apparent trouble. 

"Some schools are notorious for playing an easy pre-season 
schedule and coming into the Big 10 with records of like, 21-4," 
Frederickson said. "We like to play the better competition earli- 
er in the year." 

Sophomore infielder Eric Eymann said while the team 
knows they improve by playing tough competition, each loss is 
an emotional drain. 

"Losing takes a lot out of you, it stabs you in the heart," 
Eymann said. "We've been losing games we think we should 
have won, and the excitement is starting to wear off." 

However, the Illini managed to pull of a few major vic- 
tories throughout their season, including shut-out wins over 
Western Kentucky and Big Ten opponent Michigan State. 
While the team struggled to clinch a series, they made a lot 
of the right moves. 

"Our strategy is to get some big hits," Eymann said. 
"When our bats come alive we get a lot of runs. It's not 
small ball, it's not about huge runs, but our game is kind of 
in the middle." 

Eymann said the team has all the right ingredients for a 
winning season, but struggled to put them together. 

"We have confidence in each player," Eymann said. 
"There's a lot of individual talent, but it needs to come 
through, we need to play more as a team." 

Frederickson said college baseball often demands a stren- 
uous schedule, especially when unpredictable Midwestern 
spring weather forces rain outs at the beginning of the sea- 
son. He said in addition to being a drain on the team, this 
also accounts for the low fan-following NCAA baseball gets 
when compared to other college sports and other baseball 

"The thing that hurts college baseball the most is the 
scheduling," Frederickson said. "West Coast and Southern 
schools start playing in January, and are able to play very 
few games in a week, but we're forced to play maybe seven 
games. If you're a fan of college baseball at U of I, you're 
only going to have 20 or so games you can go to." 

While the team struggled early, Frederickson said the 
problems did not indicate its actual potential. 

"A baseball season is a marathon," he said. "Every good 
baseball player goes through slumps, but it's about getting 
better after each game, so at the end of the year you're not 
making the same mistakes you were at the beginning of the 
season, and I think we're doing that."

"Spring Storm" is a masterfully crafted play about unrequited 
love and growing up written by Tennessee Williams, one of the 
greatest American playwrights. Set in a small Mississippi town, 
the young characters are forced to choose between true love and 
social status. The play captivates audience members as they twist 
their heads back and forth to observe the small Krannert theater 
stage. The lighting effortlessly changes the mood and the scene, 
illuminating different parts of the stage and marking distinctions 
between scenes. 

"I really like the theater, it feels really intimate," said Jennifer 
Willis, freshman in Engineering. "I like the way they just change 
the lighting." 

The play was put on by the Department of Theater and 
directed by Tom Mitchell. Set during the 1930s in the Deep 
South, complete with old Southern plantations, it is about a 
society with deep-rooted values for social class and money. The 
multi-faceted personas of the complicated characters make the 
play enchanting. 

Heavenly Critchfield (Cristina Panfilio) is having a love 
affair with rebellious Dick Miles (Drew Holmes). Heavenly is 
pressured by her mother Esmeralda (Christina Dideriksen) to be 
open towards courting a more suitable, prosperous young man, 
Arthur Shannon (Kevin Miller). However, Hertha Neilson 
(Morgan Malone), a librarian of a lower social class is actually in 
love with Arthur Shannon, which completes the tangled love 

Heavenly 's mom, Esmeralda, cautions that her daughter's 
affair with Dick is like mixing their family's blood with ditch 
water. Finally, Dick leaves Heavenly to work on a river barge and 

Springs! o r m

they perform in 

Spring Storm. 

Hertha kills herself because Arthur does not love her. Arthur 
and Heavenly are together for only a brief time and, in the end, 
Arthur leaves Heavenly because he feels guilty for Hertha's 
death. Ultimately, Heavenly remains alone. 

The play feels more believable because each actor has a dis- 
tinct Southern accent. The accent quickly places the audience in 
a small Southern town getting ready for a "Spring Storm". 

"The acting is great — especially the Southern accent," said 
Joe Pierandozzi. "Without sounding too stereotypical, (the 
accent) is very hard to pull off." 

The comedy in the Spring Storm is riddled with witty 
exchanges. With each short clever line, the smiles of the audi- 
ence reflect the director's intention. When offered a Coca-Cola 
by Heavenly, the nerdy Arthur Shannon replied, "I never touch 
stimulants after 6:30." 

Much of the play is scattered with intelligent observations, 
which can be applied to the complications in other people's daily 

"I love the comedy, it's done in such a clever way," 
Pierandozzi said. "There's serious undertones, but overall it seems 
like a witty show."

Up to Par 



When a coach speaks about their pro- 
gram, words like dedication and hard work 
find their way out of the coaches' mouth. 
But it is also common to hear that a main 
goal of the program is to transform their ath- 
letes into better people. While no coach 
wants his athletes to be devoid of good char- 
acter, often other things such as winning and 
money take precedent. In a sport such as 
women's golf, that possesses such little mone- 
tary future post college, the University of 
Illinois women's golf team has found the bal- 
ance that most programs only dream of. 
Head Coach Paula Smith has found that her 
team can be successful, while changing her 
athletes' lives for the better 

"I got the Illinois through a strange path," 
Smith said. "But now, I've been here 26 years 
and there is no place that I would rather be. 
I am an Illini and working with the young 
people that exist on this team is what makes 
all the work worthwhile." 

When the graduating group of seniors 
found their own way to Champaign-Urbana, 
there weren't any seniors on the team and the 
program was on a low point. The group came 
from as near as Richmond, Illinois and they 
came from as far as Dublin, Ireland. That's 
the combination it took to change a program. 

"The expectations of success have 
changed," graduating CBA senior Michelle 
Carroll said. "When I came in, we struggled 
to find our niche but we gradually became a 
winning team. Now, four years later, we have 
trophies in our cabinet and awards on our bed 
side lockers. But perhaps most importantly, 
we have a self belief that was not present my 


freshman year." 

The difference is that instead of hoping 
to do well and hoping to finish respectably 
in the Big Ten conference, the team now 
goes into matches confident and dedicated 
to winning. 

"Our attitudes toward the game have 
changed," Carroll said. "Practice is more 
intense and focused, and we're not afraid to 
believe in ourselves anymore." 

When Paula Smith first came to 
Illinois, she had a $200 budget. Now she is 
lucky enough to recruit all over the world 
and give opportunities to her own set of 

"When I recruit, I am honest with the 
girls in letting them know that they are 
coming to Illinois," Smith said. "They 
could play all year on their own course 
somewhere else, but the educational value 
combined with the athletic resources here 
make it a great school." 

With that Illinois recruiting pitch and 


the dedication of the sports department, 
Illinois has made strides towards the top. 

In the next year, Illinois will be unveiling 
a new indoor golf complex and celebrating 
the opening of a new course. The new 
resources will help recruiting, making Illinois 
an even more appealing school to recruits and 
help the athletes by allowing them extra and 
more efficient practice time. 

With the excellent senior class graduating, 
Smith has spent time grooming the immense- 
ly talented underclassmen. 

"To the younger players, this year our 
coach has stressed the importance of 
patience," Megan Godfrey, sophomore in 
CBA, said. "Instead of the outcome of scores, 
we have tried to focus on taking one shot at a 
time and being able to accept the results, 
rather than dwelling on possible negative out-

"We are excited about the potential of our 
incoming freshmen class," Godfrey said. "With 
the large amount of graduating seniors in the last 
two years, we will be looking to depend on the 
depth of the team next year. We will also hope 
that our younger players will be able to step up 
and fill the gaps." 

The seniors graduating will have the fond 
memories of Illinois golf to look back on, while 
they will have their experience to help them out 
through their professional careers. 

"I know the people I have met here will be

years of my life have been spent travelling to 
wonderful locations with amazing individuals, 
and I've been lucky enough to find some truely 
genuine people. Without the people my time 
here would not have been as great. My team has 
made the tough times easier to bare and the 
good times the highlights of my life."

A night in the life...

Bottom: Barron and Childress prepare to join the mug club. 

The 21st birthday for anyone is a rite of passage. It 
takes the lucky person from drinking cokes at bars or liv- 
ing in fear of drinking tickets to a land of legal alcohol 

Kristen Barron marked this milestone April 14 in a 
celebration complete with SpongeBob SquarePants para- 
phernalia and 40-ounce bottles of beer. Barron's friends 
and roommates gathered at her apartment that night to 
pre-drink before heading out on their bar hopping birth- 
day spree. 

"The best part was hanging out in my apartment," 
Barron said. "Everybody was just hanging out and playing 
cards and chatting." 

The party moved to the lllini Inn, where Barron and 
three of her friends joined the mug club... a feat that 
requires wannabe members to chug a mug of freezing-cold 
beer, but rewards them with $2 brews on tap for life. 

After downing another celebratory mug of beer, the group 
proceeded to Brothers bar on Green Street. 

The bar was crowded as usual and the line to get in 
was long, but Barron displayed her driver's license proudly, 
telling the doorman that it was her birthday. He wished 
her a happy birthday as Berron got her first neon wrist- 
band, which tells the bartenders she is legal to buy and 
consume alcohol. 

"It was exciting, but I didn't really know what to do," 
she said. "I forgot I had to give him my ID." Ordering 
her first alcoholic beverage for the first time was a thrill. 

The night ended when the bars closed, but all Barron's 
friends agree it was an evening well spent. 

"Kristen's birthday was great because we had a fun 
time celebrating," said Dan Fey, one of the partiers. "Now 
none of us have to watch the door [at bars] for cops."

s Festival 

It is Friday evening in downtown 
Champaign, Apr. 16, 2004. The Boneyard Arts 
Festival, now in its fourth year, is just getting 
underway after its kickoff the night before at 
Parkland College. 

Strings of light and one of the season's first 
warm nights welcome the many visitors roam- 
ing Neil Street and stopping inside the various 
eateries and stores participating in the festival. 
Designed to help "make this community the 
best it can be," according to founder Jenny 
Southlynn of Urbana, the two-day event 
included more than 80 attractions, from 14- 
year-old guitarist Marlene Waters playing at 
Cafe Kopi to the sensitive watercolors of por- 
trait and mural artist Kim Allison, in an effort 
to showcase the vibrant local arts community. 

Laughter, sounds of clanking silverware and 
clashing beats from neighboring venues drifted 
through the air as local musicians Matt Stewart 
and Lisa Boucher began to warm up their 
instruments behind Aroma Cafe. Passersby 
approached and pulled up green lawn chairs to 
take in the sights and sounds as Stewart began

art and performed arts

to sing into the microphone in a gravelly voice. 

"Champaign was hopping Friday night," 
Southlynn said, who earned her MFA in paint- 
ing from the University of Illinois. "There was a 
lot going on." 

Urbana, too, had its moments during the 
festival, according to Southlynn. In a turn- 
around from last year, in which the Urbana 
venues were not as heavily trafficked as those of 
Champaign, attractions inside Lincoln Square 
Mall brought in about 100 visitors per hour, 
Southlynn said. 

"Urbana met the challenge this year," she 

Even the Illinois Terminal and the Don 
Moyer Boys & Girls Club showcased local arts, 
with a vocal performance by dramatic tenor 
Henry Pleas and visual contributions from 6 to 
8 year-olds. 

University students Carol Anne McChrystal 
and Samuel Field, along with Lindsey 



Anderson, exhibited two and three-dimensional 
artwork in a show at 1 16 N. Neil Street in 
Champaign. As the visitors began to enter the 
show around 7 p.m., McChrystal was busy 
attending to them and answering questions. 
Her work featured unique paintings that incor- 
porated organic lines with bright, unnatural 
colors that appeared to drip across the canvas. 
Also incorporated were themes of nature, 
including contrasting black-and-white, realisti- 
cally painted rabbits. McChrystal invited visi- 
tors to a party following the show. 

But artists, students and adults, were not the 
only ones to benefit from the bustling arts festi- 
val. A real benefit of the set-up, according to 
Southlynn, was the incorporation of local busi- 
nesses as well. Businesses took part by allowing 
the display of the artists' work. 

The decision to involve the businesses in 
the community with the arts festival Southlynn 
said was "win-win, all around. It creates a posi- 
tive force." 

Visitors not only became aware of the art 
being created in their community, but were also 
able to purchase items from the restaurants and 
stores hosting the festival. Cafe Kopi, for exam- 
ple, featured the oil paintings of Nanda 
Palmieri, whose images featured detailed jelly 
donuts in Rembrandt-style lighting, as patrons 
ordered coffee and tea. 

This sort of exposure is just what the local 
arts community needs Southlynn said. Because 
much of the creation of artwork is done in iso- 
lation, and because opportunities to show are 
not as frequent as in a larger city such as 
Chicago, the Boneyard Arts Festival meets a 
critical need locally. 

"It provides this wonderful opportunity for 
artists to be visible in this community," 
Southlynn said. "A lot of the community is 
unaware of the artists in town."

e or Mom j Day Weekend 


Flower shows, musicals, brunches, and long walks 
around campus are not the typical activities of a college 
student's weekend. But for Mom's Weekend, many stu- 
dents skipped the parties and opted for three days devot- 
ed to hanging with their mothers. 

The musical "Fiddler on the Roof, put on by the 
Illini Union Board, was one of the main attractions for 
the weekend. Held at Assembly Hall, the musical was 
packed for all three showings during the weekend. 
"Fiddler on the Roof was chosen with Mom's weekend 
in mind. The story deals with family, tradition, change, 
and letting children grow up. 

Colleen Fee, freshman in FAA, said, "The musical 
was a great activity for moms and their kids because it's 
a play many people are familiar with and get excited 

Fee, who played Tzeitel, said the content of the play 
was great too, because it focused on family and tradition. 
She also said her mom really enjoyed the show because 
she got to see her daughter get married in the perfor- 


Clockwise from bottom: The flower show included a popular "Pirates of the Carribean" display; moms come to the flower show not just to 
admire the arrangements, but to purchase some of their own; the craft show at the lllini Union is another popular destination for moms. 


Adam Paser, senior in LAS, thought the musical was 
a great choice for Mom's weekend because of it related 
to family relationships. 

Paser, who played the father, Tevye, said, "I liked the 
play because moms can especially relate to my character. 
I really felt a connection with the audience." 

For those who did not attend the musical, there were 
many of other activities throughout campus. Lauren 
Koprowski, junior in LAS, took her mom to the craft 
show at the Union and then walked around campus. 
Koprowski said she really enjoyed seeing all the students 
out and about with their moms all weekend. She also 
liked having the chance to show her mom her turf. 

"It's always exciting to have your mom see you in 
your own domain. You feel like you can teach a person 
who taught you so much of what you know," Koprowski 

Mary Kielty, sophomore in LAS, enjoyed the nice 
weather of the weekend and showed her mom around 

"It was good to catch up and talk in person. It's just a 
lot nicer to spend time with your mom and actually get 
to be with each other. It's a lot more personal than talk- 
ing on the phone," Kielty said. 

Lindsay Omolecki, junior in LAS, went shopping 
with her mom. They also went golfing at the University 
course. Omolecki really liked the chance to hang out 
with her friends and their moms. 

"I like Mom's weekend because it's a different setting 
than I'm used to seeing my mom in. She gets to meet 
my friends and it's just a good bonding experience," she 

While many spent the day avoiding the parties, oth- 
ers couldn't wait to take their moms out to the bars. 
After the flower show and craft show, Clifford Grosse, 
senior in LAS, took his mom back to his apartment to 
party with his roommates and the other moms. The 
group had a mom versus child "flippy cup" challenge 
and grilled out on the balcony. Grosse said it was great 
to see his mom cut loose. 

Mark Becker, senior in Engineering, took his mom to 
the various University sponsored events, but made sure 
to take his mom out to the bars at night. He said he 
really enjoyed the weekend because he got to do things 
with his mom he would never do otherwise. When his 
mom left on Sunday, she thanked him and his room- 
mates for "helping her relive her youth."

cert Series 


Tucked away the northern most point of campus lays the 
Beckman institute. Known for its scientific endeavors, it's 
probably the last place anyone would think they could find 
great music. However, concertgoers for the Twelve Twenty 
concert series know differently. 

The series, which has been running for more than 6 years, 
is the brainchild of collaboration between Beckman and the 
University's school of music. This year, the concert series 
brought 14 performances to the main atrium of the institute, 
and all performances were by school of music artists. This 
year's creative exhibitions included a saxophone quartet, a jazz 
ensemble, a harpist and a violinist. 

The concerts usually draw over 50 people, most of who 
work in the building and enjoy a break from scientific laboring. 
The idea from the series originated from Ed Rath, Associate 
Professor of the Music Department.

The Sixth Annual Roger Ebert's Overlooked 
Film Festival took place at the Virginia Theatre 
in downtown Champaign from April 21-25. The 
festival was dedicated to the memory of Kim 
Rotzoll, the former dean of the College of 
Communications. Roger Ebert said that Rotzoll's 
help was what made the festival possible six years 

Emily Siska, senior in advertising, was a first 
time volunteer at the festival. 

"It's very exciting," she said. "The people are 
so nice, they walk up to say 'thank you' for volun- 
teering." She also received one credit hour for 
volunteering at the festival. 

Siska said the most amusing thing she saw was 
Enzo the Dog, who played Skip in "My Dog 
Skip," onstage after the showing of the movie. 
Enzo and his father Moose have also played Eddie

on the sitcom "Frasier." 

The screening of "Once Upon a Time... When We 
Were Colored," was part of the Chancellor's 
Commemorative Year of the 50th anniversary of Brown 
v. Board of Education. Ebert said he chose the film, 
"because I love it. I love it for the characters and the 
memory of a way of life." 

On Saturday, April 24, there was a dinner for Ebert's 
guests at the festival. It was held in the Green Room of 
the Springer Cultural Center on 301 N. Randolph St. in 
Champaign. Guests included Errol Morris, the director 
of "Gates of Heaven," another movie featured at the fes- 

Jay Russell, the director of "My Dog Skip," was 
another guest. He is currently working on an action 
movie, scheduled to come out in October. The movie 
was filmed in Baltimore, and Russell said that it was 
completely different from what he usually does. 

Nathan Miller, the box office supervisor at the 
Virginia Theatre, said that tickets for this year's festival 
sold out extremely fast because the festival is growing in

Senior Phil Stolt finishes his match with an impressive 6-1, 6-2 victory 
over Kenner of Indiana. This put Stolt at 15-5 on the season and 8-1 in 
the conference, having won eight out of his last nine matches. 


Too often, a student-athlete's career ends unfulfilled, and a person 
who has worked so hard for years comes away with a bad taste in their 
mouth. Only one team can win the championship each year, so the 
odds are against you. But the Illini Men's Tennis team has fresh breath; 
they have had a sweet taste in their mouths for the entire season. The 
words perfection and dominance have become synonymous with this 
elite program. 

Seniors Michael Calkin, Phil Stolt and Brian Wilson will be graduat- 
ing from Illinois after this season, leaving permanent footprints behind. 
Not one has ever not won the Big Ten championship; they have two 
indoor national championships and at least one national championship. 
The trio has led the way for a national record of consecutive wins, and 
was able to have members of the 2002-2003 team crowned both individ- 
ual and doubles champions. But even withall of the success on their 
resumes, they are still starving for more. 

"We hope to win the Big Ten Championship and the NCAA nation- 
al Championship," said Junior Chris Martin. "As well as having the 
individual singles and doubles champions crowned."

leadership on this team is focused on one thing, domina-

"Both coach and the captains stress discipline, both 
mentally and physically," Martin said. "To win we need to 
keep our attention to detail." 

The players also recognize the power of staying hum- 
ble. Even with all the achievements there is always one 
more record that can be set, and the team is quick to give 
credit to a higher power.

talent, but talent that is willing to work hard to achieve a 
common goal. 

Along with working hard every day in practice, the 
team has done the little things in order to become cham- 
pions. Over the years, they have formed tight bonds with 
each other, well aware that one day they would call on 
that in competition.

from Indiana 8-3. 

"One word to describe our team would be family," 
Calkins said. "We are like a family in everything we do. 
That is one reason why we enjoy playing with each other." 

The family they have built is also a dynasty, and from all 
accounts this is a dynasty that was built to last. There are 
no signs that Illinois is going to let up. Even after the senior 
class graduates, the younger athletes have been groomed to 
step into the role of champions. 

"The future of Illinois is going to be just as successful in 
the future as we have been these last two years," Calkins 
said. "They will be dominate in the big ten and be a major 
threat to win it all at the NCAA level." 

The dynasty is reloading, but this senior class that has 
produced so many of Illinois finest moments will live in 

"They all came here as accomplished freshmen, but still 
had a lot to improve on in their games," said Tiley. "I am 
very proud of the improvements they have made. I'm very 
proud of their efforts and their contribution to Illinois ten- 
nis. One of the most exciting aspects of dealing with stu- 
dent-athletes is watching them develop and reach their 
goals in college. One of the saddest times is having to say 
'bye.' On the other hand, I am excited for these guys and 
their careers. We will miss their energy and effort around 
here, and they will be forever connected with our program."

Despite the unfavorable weath 
er conditions a large crowd of 
women gathered at Westside 

Park to march against assault. 

rtke j£>ack the. 

April is the beginning of Sexual Assau 
Month. It is a time for both men and women to unite in 
the fight against sexual violence. Despite the great 
strides our society has made in the struggle for gender 
equality, there is a lot more to be done. Sexual violence 
is still a widespread problem. Members of the Gay, 
Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, and Transgender (GLBT) are have 
also been targets of sexual violence. The U of I campus is 
not immune to these issues. One of the major events 
that mark Sexual Assault Awareness Month is the annu- 
al Take Back the Night. 

Take Back the Night is an annual march and rally 
that brings attention to sexual violence in the University 
community and beyond. It has taken place since the 
1970's. Ruxandra Costescu has been organizing Take 
Back the Night for the past four years. 

"The main goal of the event is to bring attention to 
the issue of the lack of safety and the fear usually experi- 
enced by women on the streets at night (in the context 
of the violence that women contend with on a daily 
■basis in many areas of their lives)," she said. "It provides 
an opportunity and a space for women to take matters 
into their own hands and feel safe being out at night on 

their own, and to build a diverse and wid 
groups and individuals, male and female, i 
eradicating violence against women in our communi- 

Participants in Take Back the Night can expec 
truly informative and life changing experience. Tr. 
event begins with a rally in which speakers and p< 
ers address issues related to violence against wome 
is followed by a women only march, which creates a 
sense of unity among the participants. Male allies s 
taneously hold a discussion. The event ends with a 
smaller rally in which everyone is allowed to reflec 
the experience and make their voices heard. 

The event has become an important tradition a 
University. Each year the event attracts nearly 400 
pie. Approximately 25 organizations sponsor the event, 
from the Office of Women's programs to Amnesty 
International. Take Back the Night is a great way fo 
dents and Champaign-Urbana residents to reflect or f 
issue of sexual assault and join in the fight against it 
Costecu said she became involved in Take Back the 
Night because the first march she participated in wa 
very powerful experience for her. 

Take Back the Night has been successful in bringing 
attention to sexual assault and suggesting improvements 
that could be made to make women safer. Safe Rides and 
the Campus Police help students stay safer. Safe Rides 
transports students to their destinations after dark free of 

Campus Police patrol the streets in small groups to 
make sure that students are safe. Additionally, campus 
phones can be found all over campus in case of an emer- 

However, there is more work to be done. Costescu 
points out, "as the standing statistic suggests, one in six 
women will experience a sexual assault while at the 
University." The issue of sexual assault is difficult to solve 
because it deals with more than an act of violence. Some 
attribute the prevalence of sexual assault to the objectifi- 
cation of women in our culture. Others blame it on per- 
sonal beliefs, such as the idea that one sex or sexual ori- 
entation is better then another. In order to eliminate sex- 
ual assault we would have to reconstruct the thinking 
that lies behind such violence. 

Take Back the Night also stresses men's involvement 
in the prevention of sexual assault. The solution involves 
not only women learning how to protect themselves but 
men learning to respect women's boundaries

A day in the life ' 

of... The Ouad 

It is the center of campus. Foellinger Auditorium, Lincoln 
Hall, and Noyes Lab help to make it the hub of academia. 
Students come to study, hang out with friends, eat lunch, and 
bask in the sun. Clubs come to publicize events and sell tick- 
ets. Political groups hold rallies, protests, and marches. Others 
chalk the sidewalks to leave birthday messages and send shout 
outs for friends. Crowds of students pass through it everyday. 
This hustle and bustle is the embodiment of the Quad. This 
place, this heart of the University is the Quad. 

Throughout the week, the Quad is never empty. Between 
classes, throngs of people walk through the Quad going from 
class to class. During the warmer months students litter the 
lawn. They lie out on the grass, read the DI, study for class, 
and even catch a quick nap. 

For this hub of activity, the school year officially begins 
with Quad day. Ten thousand people flock to the annual tradi- 
tion, which occurs the day before fall classes start. Every stu- 
dent organization from the Falling Illini to Campus Crusade for 
Christ to Illini Paintball Warriors set up booths in attempts to 
recruit new members. With around 1,200 registered student 
organizations and only 500 booths for Quad day, demand for a 
spot can be high. 

Assistant Dean Brooks Moore, director of Registered 
Student Organizations, says some groups even camp overnight 
on the Quad in order to ensure they receive a spot for Quad 
day. Registration for next year filled up in one month. 

Along with clubs, booths, and flyers, Quad day also features 
two stages with performances throughout the day. Performers 
include the Illini Marching Band, martial arts groups, and 
singing ensembles. 

Though other campuses have events similar to Quad day, 
Moore says he has never experienced another event that is of 
the same magnitude.

Students often utilize the 
Quad as a place to study, 
catch a few rays, or just 
relax between classes. 


Moore says Quad day has been a tradition for over 30 
years. Because of this it has grown into more than just a 
recruitment day, it has become a rite of passage. 

After Quad day, the activity lessens but never really dies 
down. Throughout the year, various events and rallies are 
held out on the lawn or in front of the Union. During 
Homecoming week, many events are held on the Quad 
including performances, speakers, and announcements of the 
homecoming court. 

Melissa Picciola, junior in LAS and member of Student 
Alumni Association, helps plan homecoming week events. 
Lunch on the Quad, one of many events, featured Illini 
Union vendors serving food al fresco. Homecoming opening 
ceremonies, also on the Quad, included performances by the 
Orange & Blues Band and Illini N' Motion. 

Other students opt for less organized events. Owen 
Kopon, sophomore in LAS, likes to just hang out on the 
Quad. Sometimes he jumps in on games of frisbee with 
friends. He likes to sit and read, or watch the squirrels. 
Kopon says he likes being around people and watching all 
the activity. 

Bethany Woods, senior in Business, has made many 
memories on the Quad. She says she likes to hang out there 
whenever she gets a chance because she usually doesn't have 
anything better to do. Woods especially likes to people 

"There's some weird people on the Quad," she said. 

Along with some of her friends, Woods also streaked 
across the Quad at 3 a.m. and had mudslides through the 

Some events embody a more serious nature. Erin Janulis, 
junior in LAS and president of Students for Kerry, helped 
register students to vote. In the week before the primary 
elections, members of College Democrats and Students for 
Kerry registered around 1,400 people. 

16, 2004 IllinlPAC, the Illinois-Israeli Public 
:ee, members organized a celebration for 


Israel's Independence Day. The celebration included food, 
dancing, decorating a quilt, and passing out flyers. 

Mike Lieberman, sophomore in LAS, went to the celebra- 
tion because he is very proud of his heritage. It was a little July 
4th down here, he said. 

Adam Shu, freshman in Engineering, thinks the Quad has a 
great environment and likes just being around people. He also 
likes to play golf on the Quad, even though he was asked to 

As part of the Radio Flyer club, Shu also participates in 
chariot races on the Quad. Racers ride in wagon "chariots" that 
are pulled by a partner riding a bicycle. Chariot racers joust 
with noodles as they race around the Quad. Though Shu 
enjoys the event, he says it's important to watch out for the 
concrete trashcans. 

Chrissy Parisi, senior in LAS, comes to the Quad to fight 
with members of the Numenor Belegarth Medieval Combat 
Society. Parisi, who goes by "Ricket" in the society, likes the 

attention the group receives on the Quad. Parisi says it's a great 
place to recruit new members because people are always inter- 
ested in the sword fighting. 

One of the biggest events on the Quad this year was the 
candlelight vigil protesting Chief Illiniwek. Progressive 
Resource/Action Cooperative organized a month of anti-chief 
action during February and March. At the rally to end Chief 
Illiniwek on March 10 Native Americans from the Midwest 
came to show their support. There was also a pipe ceremony 
and a press conference. 

Most of all, the Quad is what makes the University. Diana 
Avendano, senior in Communications, studied abroad in 
Spain for a semester. When Avendano returned from Spain, 
she says she went straight to the Quad. 

"This is what I missed," she said. 

Tiffany Ritter, senior in LAS, enjoys movies on the Quad, 
socializing, and watching all the different groups of people. 
Ritter says she's seen people tightrope walking in between 
trees, the drama club performing, and people practicing inter- 
pretive dance. 

"There's always something going on here," she said. 

Ritter also participated in scavenger hunts on the Quad 
with her sorority. Once she had "Happy Birthday" played on 
the bells of Altgeld for her friend's birthday. They also had 
cake on the Quad that day. 

For Ritter, who has all her classes on the Quad, it has 
become a special place. 

"The Quad is essentially college for me."

Women J Track eJ Field 


When women's track and field hosted its only home invite 
of the outdoor season, somebody forgot to tell Mother Nature. 
Bookended by weeks boasting 80-degree temperatures, May 1 
was cold, rainy and anything but ideal for a track and field 

Despite the inclement weather, the women's track team 
managed to rise to the occasion and make its only meet on 
home turf a good one. The Illini collected 12 top-three finishes, 
including eight first-places. 

"Considering the weather, I think all of us did pretty well," 
said junior thrower Nicole Salata. "It's really hard to keep your 
concentration and focus when it's cold and rainy." 

The track season started before second semester even got 
underway, with indoor meets beginning in January. While it has 
been a long season, the women have met great success in com- 
petitions, particularly on the track. 

"We have only three throwers on the team, and only two are 
going to Big Tens," Salata said. "It's mostly a sprinting and dis- 
tance running track team." 

Salata said the team's depth on the track is largely due to 
Coach Gary Winkler's experience in that area. She said having 
a coach famous for working with runners. brings in top recruits. 

"Gary is great, and he's famous for being a sprinting coach," 
Salata said. 


Because the 2004 team is smaller than in years past, Salata 
said recruiting is even more important. 

"We have less people traveling this year, which has been a 
major factor (when we've struggled)," Salata said. "We've been 
losing that width, so our new recruits are going to have to come 
in and fill that space." 

Before looking to next year-or even to the Big Ten 
meet-the Illini had to direct their attention to more academic 
pursuits: finals. With the conference falling the weekend after 
exams, balancing the roles of student and athlete became even 
more of a challenge. 

"I think as athletes we get used to it," Salata said. "Practice 
is the time of day to loosen up, get your blood flowing." 

If the athletes have an excessive amount of work, they are 
allowed to miss a practice. 

"We are allowed to skip practice if we need to, because 
school comes first," Salata said. "Coach is really good about 
understanding if you need to take a day off." 

However, when finals are over, the focus goes right back to 
the team. 

"Going into Big Ten, we only have 14 girls, where it used to 
be 25," Salata said. "But the people we are sending are getting 
the points in."

ting Records 

7/Hen's ~£mck f- "ZFutd 


This year's track season was characterized by great 
wins, new records and big strides for the men's team. 
The streak began with a great performance at the Big 
Ten Outdoor Championships in West Lafayette, Ind. 

In the 400-meter hurdles, sophomore Adrian 
Walker set a track record with his time of 50.62 sec- 
onds. Sophomores Abe Jones and Anthony young 
also turned in excellent times, with Young qualifying 
with a time of 52.13 seconds. 

"I was pleased with the performances of Jon 
Houseworth and Anthony Young, who both regional- 
ly qualified," Head Coach Wayne Angel said in an 
interview for the Fighting Illini website. "I was very 
excited about the performances of Adrian Walker and 
Abe Jones in the 400m hurdles." 

The team was very young this year, with only six 
seniors out of a 44-man roster. Despite a lack of team 
veterans, the men prospered and sent Jones and 
Walker to the NCAA Championships after their 1-2 
finish in the regional meet. Walker clocked a finish 
of 50.01 seconds, which places him second on the list 
of the Illini 400 hurdles list, just behind Sherman 
Armstrong's finish in 2000. 


While the regional meet may have brought 
good news for Walker and Jones, the Illini's 
other races did not fare as well. The relay team 
of Jones, Walker, sophomores Anthony Young 
and Nathan Vadeboncoeur failed to qualify. 
Sophomore Jon Houseworth finished 17th in 
the 3, 000-meter steeplechase, and both sopho- 
more Eric DiSilvestro and senior Adam Pierson 
failed to clear a height in the pole vault. 

Although the Illini suffered a few disappoint- 
ments and had their share of greatness in the 
course of the season, for the mostly underclass- 
men team, there is always next year and the 
chance to improve upon the foundation they

V$£ <AU £ cream 

Ut Custard. 


While June 21 is listed as the official first day of summer, 
April 16 was the day central Illinois got its first glimpse of 80- 
degree weather. With the second week back after spring break 
coming to a close and Mom's Weekend about to commence, 
one word was on many students minds: custard. 

Jarling's Custard Cup, 309 West Kirby in Champaign, is 
known locally for its unique brand of soft-serve ice cream. 
Having operated at its current Champaign location for 2 1 
years, Custard Cup has become a tradition among students as 
well as local residents. 

"Since my mom was here and I don't have an opportunity 
to treat her that often, I thought it was a good place to go," 
said Susan Lohuis, freshman in Business, who went to Custard 
Cup with her mother who came in from Florida for the week- 
end. "Since we don't have a Custard Cup where we are, I 
thought it would be a fun thing to do." 


Custard Cup originally served only basic flavors of cus- 
1 tard, but over the years its menu has expanded to include a 
' variety of ice cream creations, including milkshakes, sundaes, 
, and the Blizzard- or McFlurry-like snowstorms. 

"It's hard to say what our most popular item is," said Store 
Manager John McFarland. "We sell a lot of snowstorms. As 
tor the favorite flavor, it depends on the person's taste." 

One of Custard Cup's trademark selections is the cold 
fudge sundae, made with cold instead of hot fudge. 

"We refrigerate the fudge instead of heating it," 
McFarland said. "It makes for a thicker, richer fudge." 

Traditional items are still favorites for many customers, 

"I had lemon custard, because that was what I remember," 
said Nancy Lohuis, Susan's mom and a University alumna. "I 
don't get that anywhere else." 

The business was started in 1949, and was purchased by 
Wilmer Jarling and his wife in 1969. Custard Cup currently 
runs two ice cream shops in addition to the Champaign loca- 
tion, the original store in Danville is still in operation. For a 
brief time in the mid-1990s a third location was established 
in Urbana, but McFarland said the conditions were not right 
for success. 

"It was open about two and a half years," McFarland said. 

Opposite / Above: Students sit 
outside Custard cup enjoying 
both the spring weather and 
their custard cups. Right: An 

area resident attempts to steal 
his sons custard. 

"It was one of those deals where people didn't seem really 

Custard is very similar to soft-serve ice cream, but with a 
few important differences, McFarland said. 

"The primary difference is the way it's made," he said. "It's 
actually run on a custard machine. Soft serve ice cream actu- 
ally has air pumped into it, but custard doesn't, so it's served 
more dense than your typical soft serve." 

McFarland said most custard has a high level of butter fat 
and egg yolk used in making it, but Custard Cup uses a 
healthier recipe. 

"Our custard is 93 percent fat free," he said. 

While days like Commencement and the Fourth of July 
draw huge crowds for Custard Cup, the winter months see 
such a slowing of business that the store closes for the winter 

"It wouldn't be profitable to stay open," McFarland said. 
"People come in and say, "I don't know what we're going to do 
with you closed," but the truth is the last couple months of 
the year nobody comes out." 

However, when warm weather returns temperatures climb 
back up and both students and local residents find their way 
to Custard Cup. 

"We have a lot of residents who've been coming since we 
opened," McFarland said. "But every year, the new student 
crowd always comes out."

^UztW-ooA 7/Ktlt rocks 

Left: Fleetwood Mac members John 

McVie, Stevie Nicks, Mick 

Fleetwood, and Lindsey Buckingham 

perform on May 9th at Assembly 


Below: Stevie Nicks in true form won 
over the crowd with her stage pres- 
ence and amazing vocals. 





One of the most famous bands in history graced Assembly 
Hall's stage May 7. Fleetwood Mac, a band which first 
formed in the '60s and has since been through many reincar- 
nations and band members, is still making music. 

The group began their world tour in Columbus, OH. and 
delighted audiences in Champaign-Urbana with their sooth- 
ing sound and endless chemistry. 

"My very first tape I bought was Stevie Nicks "Rock a 
Little" so it was amazing to see one of my idols perform live 
on stage," said Susan M Kazmierczak, a social work graduate 
student. "The first time I heard "Little Lies", I fell in love 
with Fleetwood Mac." 

The group's most recent effort, "Say You Will" marked 
the first time since 1987 that Lindsey Buckingham was in 
the studio. However, Christine McVie was obviously absent 
from the album and the tour. This did not sour the group's 
performance and the concert was a memorable night for fans, 

as well as those not really acquainted with the group, but 
attended with parents. 

"I have been an avid fan of Fleetwood Mac for over 25 
years, and not only was this the concert of a lifetime for me, 
but it was even more special because I was able to attend 
with my son Joshua," said Leesa Beecham. 

The album was an unexpected development for the 
group, and the ensuing tour seemed to heal the wounds left 
by previous years of wear and tear on friendships. 

"We were originally going to get together for a few 
weeks," writes John McVie on the group's website. "It turned 
in to a year. The fact was, we were enjoying ourselves 
tremendously. I wouldn't say it was exactly like old times. It 
was better. We'd all let a lot of things go and were free to 
concentrate on the music."

Graduates and their parents wait 

in a long line for hours at a time 

to get a chance for a photo in 

front of the Alma Mater statue. 


The weekend of May 15-16 found the campus 
covered in people wearing strange hats and long 
robes. Graduation had finally arrived for the class 
of 2004. 

Campus wide commencement ceremonies were 
held at Assembly Hall, where speaker Loni Guinier, 
a professor of law at Harvard University, extolled 
the virtues of education, but said public education 
has become something that no longer serves the 
masses. She cited lower-class whites and minorities 
as being groups that are unable to afford higher 
education, even though they pay taxes. She urged 
all graduates, obviously beneficiaries of public edu- 
cation, to strive for an education system that is 
open and easily available to everyone. 

The ceremony also saw the announcement of the 
creation of a fellowship in honor of exiting 
Chancellor Nancy Cantor, who is leaving Illinois 
for Syracuse University after 3 years of service. 

President James Stukel said the fellowship would 
go to students who shared and wished to forward 
Cantor's vision of diversity. The ceremony was also 
the last for President Stukel, who is retiring after 43 


years at the University, nine of those as President. 

Individual ceremonies were held in smaller 
venues throughout campus, where graduates 
received their IOU diplomas. 

For the class of 2004, it has been a long road, 
filled with potholes, speed bumps and lots of cam- 
pus construction. They have built friendships, 
learned about their disciplines, and most important- 
ly, learned about themselves. As they scatter across 
the country and across the world, Illinois will 
always be here to welcome them home with open

We all remember the days when summer was a time of 
no responsibilities. We remember when the to-do list for 
an entire ten weeks consisted of nothing more than run- 
ning around outside, collecting bugs, and striking up con- 
versations with people in the neighborhood. If you're like 
most students, you have probably traded in those leisurely 
days for a more profitable activity: working. What you 
might not know is that there are college students who get 
paid to do those very things, and you could be one of 

Kate Carnahan, senior in FAA, is one example. 
Instead of spending a week backpacking through Flathead 
National Forest in Montana, Carnahan decided to work 
there for an entire summer, based out of the Spotted Bear 
Ranger Station. Originally working in trail maintenance, 
Carnahan was later dispatched as part of a 20-man crew 
in Durango, CO. to fight the Missionary Ridge Fire for 16 

In order to do the job, Carnahan said, "you have to be 
a hard worker and enjoy living outside. You have to be 
adaptable and flexible - you can't predict anything in 

On the trail, Carnahan hiked between 15 and 20 miles 
a day and was responsible for cutting, sawing, and digging 
drainage. Even though the physical demands were tough, 
Carnahan said she had a difficult time leaving in the fall. 

"Once you get out there, you can't not love it," she 



Clockwise from top: 

Kate Carnahan, Ian 

Pearse, and Amy Waitz 

look forward to their 

summer jobs. 





Waking up with the sun and going 10 days between 
showers was all in a day's work for Carnahan. At the end 
of the day, she and the other crew members, mostly under 
30 years-old, would play by the river or gather around a 
bonfire. Carnahan played the harmonica. 

"You work hard, but you also relax hard," Carnahan 
said, adding that the group sometimes played rummy for 
five hours a day. 

Climbing mountains she described as rolling and most- 
ly forested with Pines and Furs, Carnahan said she saw a 
couple moose and black bears, as well as a lot of deer. 

"That job is special," she said. "Life is so simple when 
you're there." 

Another student who didn't spend the summer work- 
ing a cash register or sitting at a desk is Ian Pearse, senior 
in LAS. Pearse summed up his job working for the 

Natural History Survey as such: "I drove around the state 
collecting bugs." 

After hearing about the position from a flyer, Pearse 
applied and was hired for the job, based at Wiedenmann 
Lab on South First Street. Pearse said he was mainly 
looking at different types of beetles invasive to the United 
States, such as the Asian Longhorn Beetle, that enter the 
country through overseas shipments to industrial cities 
and ravage the woodlands. Many Christmas tree farmers 
in Illinois, for example, have suffered substantial econom- 
ic hardship because of the Pine Shoot Beetle, Pearse said. 
A highlight of the summer came when Pearse and his col- 
leagues found two invasive Asian species not previously 
found in Illinois. They had entered industrial facilities in 
Springfield, Peoria and East St. Louis. 

Pearse said he enjoyed "the major travel aspect to the 

job. I got to see a lot of the state." 

The biggest challenge laid in identifying small beetles 
with similar characteristics. 

"One might look like another, but be perfectly harm- 
less," Pearse said. 

As a result of his findings, the government will decide 
whether to eradicate the species, "hem it in," or simply let 
it run free, if it decides it does not pose a significant 

To be qualified, Pearse said, one should "like bugs." 
If a job that involves working with people more than with 
nature appeals to you, you should consider the summer 
Amy Waitz, senior in LAS, spent in Traverse City, Mich. 
Waitz worked the counter and drive-thru window at 
McDonalds as part of a Campus Crusade for Christ 
Summer Project. 

"I actually loved it," said Waitz, anticipating the con- 
ventional wisdom that says fast food jobs aren't fun. "It 
was very different from anything I've done - lots of inter- 
actions with lots of different people." 

Waitz was able to combine her passion for the Gospel 
with an eight week lesson in human nature. As an 
employee, "you recognize just how much someone's pleas- 
ant attitude can brighten someone else's day," she said. 
"You don't know where people go after they leave. You 
can tell by their expression they're not used to being 
treated kindly." 

Some of the customers, in turn, were able to brighten 
Waitz's day, such as one regular who gave her the nick- 
name "Smiley." 

Waitz encountered her share of rude customers, and 
even some who tried to steal lots of condiments when 
they thought she wasn't looking. 

"People are really funny with what they try to scam 
you out of," she said. 

Many hours were spent simply talking with people, 
both in and outside of McDonalds about religion and 
God. One question she and other students from Campus 
Crusade asked was whether or not people believed in 

With the other employees, Waitz said she enjoyed see- 
ing "what their dreams were and how they were working 
toward them." 

At the end of the summer, Waitz felt changed, "mostly 
in my view of who God is," she said. "I grew stronger in 
my faith." 

Waitz also felt excited to be part of a project that goes 
on all over the world. 

"I think that's pretty huge that I was part of one and 
they're going on everywhere," she said. 

She added that McGriddles are "awesome."

that promotes the joining of international students and 
study abroad returnees. We have created an on-campus

culturally and socially interact.

It seems like only yesterday when we were driving you to Illinois 

for your first year of college, the alternator caught fire and we put 

it out with a can of Mountain Dew. From such a shaky beginning 

you have certainly gone on to make your college experience one 

that you can be very proud of. Your Mother and I are extremely 

proud of you and what you have accomplished! 

Love, Mom & Dad

Dear Kates, 

Out of the crib, across the street, around the block... off to Denver! 

You've always loved heading out on your own. 

In a "blink" you've grown from being our precious baby girl to the 

fine young woman you are today. And you have filled out lives 

with love, happiness, and pride. Now we look forward to watching 

you craft a unique and successful future for yourself. 

Much luck and love, 

Mom and Dad

It has been said that, "Real success is the personal satisfaction that 
comes from knowing that you have done your best to teach your 
fullest potential in what you have chosen to do. Success is not a 
matter of chance... it's a matter of choices." 
Your choices have made us proud. Your hard work, perseverance 
and determination have made you a symbol of excellence. We con- 
gratulate you for all of your accomplishments. 
Mom and family 

Karen Murray

fe. I pray that friends we'll always be.

To the greatest friends... 

The Westies-thanks for hours of endless fun, laughing and good 
times. My senior year wouldn't have been the same without you. 
Squad 39-you guys are the craziest, funniest bunch to hang out 
with. Thanks for always waking me laugh! 

To everyone else, Peter, Andy, the 04's, and all who I didn't men- 
tion, thanks for a great four years. 
I know we will be friends for a lifetime.

To all those who have made my years at UIUC memorable, I thank 

you and love you. I'll always keep the Westies, aoii's, lodgers, AY 

gals, and everyone else who I didn't list in my fondest of memories. 

To all those that will still be here, don't forget that some of the 

best lessons learned are outside the classroom. (But you still have 

to go to class)

Editors Notes 

As I sit here and think about this amazing four year 
adventure at the University of Illinois, I realize how many 
awesome friendships I have built and amazing journeys I 
have taken. There are too many people to name all that I 
owe credit to, but here are a few notables... 
Mom - Although I teased you about the numerous daily 
phone calls I really appreciate your involvement in my 
life. You're always my biggest supporter and I know I can 
always count on you. 

The Fam - Couldn't have made it without your support 
in all of my endeavours. Special thanks to Uncle Greg 
and Aunt Gloria who introduced me to the University of 
Illinois through Illini Football and through your generosi- 
ty I didn't miss a single game in four years! 
Sue - Wow! I can't believe it's been four years and you 
haven't shot me! You were one of my first friends at the 
U of I and will no doubt be a part of my life from here on 
out! I'll never forget the stumble back from Murphys 
where we saw that guy fall and of course "Vandango? 
hobocamp? hobo... hobocamp!" The trip to Branson and 
the Virgin Mary... thanks Rob! 

Alyssa - My theatre buddy! It was always an interesting 
time when we were together! I'll never forget the late 
night at Meijer and it's too bad we never placed the "freak 
ad" although the responses may have been disturbing! 
Goodluck in New York! Love ya! 
Claire - I couldn't have asked for a better Asssitant 
Editor! You were incredible and put up with so much 
shit... thank for being my Illio Thug! Your design abilities 
are amazing and this book is proof of that. Out of the 

office... I knew you were a friend after Never Have I Ever 
and the weekly Thursday nights at Brother's (dancing is 
always a plus in my book). Have an amazing time in 
Richmond! Love always! 

Quincy & Lori - My absent Illio staffers... it just wasn't 
the same without you but your friendships mean the 
world! So when did I know you were friendship materi- 
al... well that first Thursday at Brother's... anyone who 
would jump so quickly on the idea of New Orleans (but 
settle for Nashville!) and of course, like Claire anyone 
who doesn't mind dancing like no one is watching is a 

Mary - You were the most amazing boss anyone could ask 
for! Thank you for including me in the planning of the 
new Illini Media building. I never imagined my back- 
ground in architecture being utilized at the Illio. Your 
confidence in my ability as Editor in Chief was empower- 
ing! I'm so grateful for this opportunity! 
The Illio Staff- You were all amazing!! I can't even 
begin to tell you have excited I am about this book. Your 
dedication and also your friendships are valued immensly! 
Good luck to each of you in your journeys ahead! 
Brittany & Chrissy - You're the best girls in the world 
to watch Sex and the City with... not to mention Oz, The 
Soprano's, Curb Your Enthusiam... HBO in general! 
Thank you for the amazing times we shared. We couldn't 
have planned a better night before graduation. I'll miss 
partying with you on a regular basis! Oh, and Brittany 
and Amanda... "No Todd! Not now!" 

-Joshua S. Welch, Editor in Chief
